Patient Yearling

I am not a wildlife photographer by any stretch of the imagination. I am always so impressed with people that get amazing close up shots of wildlife from their adventures in nature, particularly action shots.

With that being said, I could not resist attempting to get a photo or two of this courageous yearling, who came out of the woods with three of his family members during a hike my son and I took along the Sandy River on Sunday. I was able to get fairly close to all 4 deer, and this one in particular was very patient with me while I snapped away.

  3. A great photo and a cute deer.

  4. Beautiful capture! I've seen deer that can be that patient, but not yearlings before... they do tend to be skittish.
