who do not tax their lives with forethought of grief …
For a time I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.”

A beautiful four point white-tailed deer buck strikes a majestic pose as a peaceful hush sweeps across the field as a midwinter snowfall begins cascading from the sky in this high contrast monochrome shot I captured in the park in the late afternoon of a February day.

“One touch of nature
makes the whole world kin.”
~ William Shakespeare
My favorite white-tailed deer doe pauses from eating her apple in the snow before happily finishing it on a winter’s evening in the park.
I’ve been blessed to photograph this doe and her fawns since 2012, and it’s a true joy to me personally and as a photographer.
