Fawn In The Evening Shade ...


“A simple act of kindness and compassion towards a single animal may not mean anything to all creatures, but will mean everything to one.”

It’s always the sweetest sight of summer to see a white-tailed deer fawn, and here my favorite one – Buttons, as I call him – strikes a pose in the evening shade in early July as his mama doe and twin sister stood close by in the park.



I began photographing Buttons as a precious white-spotted fawn, then a sweet button buck and yearling before he migrated away in January 2020. It’s a true joy and blessing to me personally and as a photographer to have watched this white-tailed deer grow.
