Last week I was fortunate to see a procession of four Whitetail does as they pranced their way through a typical sequence of poses and I was able to catch these photos from the entrance to the exit.

  6. These are beautiful! I especially like ‘The exit’ with the tail bushed up and the deer in motion. The backgrounds of nature and sky are lovely. How fortunate you were there to capture these photos… what a treat! ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. I know what you mean, Tabbie, but in the fall and I see the flash of sun on a big set of antlers…

    I like the “series” even better than just the one print! The lighting is exquisite.

  11. Anna,

    Fortunate is right! I think that, because I’m out admiring nature so much, nature sometimes gives me a gift.

  12. I’ve noticed that too, Malcolm, but they don’t seem to do it as gracefully.

  13. Maureen,

    Yes, the lighting was exactly what I would have asked for. When Nature wants to display it’s wonderful to be there to see it!

  15. Thanks, Scott! Difficult light, but as with most photography, light is paramount. I was especially pleased that the light brought out so much detail in the brush on the right side of the 2nd and 3rd photos. That greasewood is what keeps the Whitetails alive through tough winters and I was very pleased to have it in the frames with the deer.

  16. What a beautiful sequence. I loved Montana in the summer and fall as a flyfisherman and see it is every bit as wonderful in the winter. Your pictures throughout as simply stunning. Thanks
