    • It was a cool spot, just on the edge of the shade, and there was a refreshing wind blowing too.

  2. What a beautiful capture… did she run away or just lie there and let you click? How wonderful.

    • She stayed put for several shots and as we were leaving she got up.

    • I was very lucky. If one is outdoors as much as I am, shots like this will present themselves once in awhile I guess. Kind of like the blind squirrel finding a nut.

  8. The doe is lovely. Now fair warning: Don’t think I am copying you but tomorrow on my own blog will be, yes, deer. Though my pictures are way less clear and excellent as yours.

  9. What a good capture! How did you get so close? She is beautiful.

    • I caught that scene in my peripheral vision while driving a small road. I continued on about a quarter of a mile and stopped to change my lens. Then, because she didn’t seem to pay attention to the Jeep, I just backed up until I could get the shot.

    • Looked like a pretty good spot to me too! Don’t often catch one lying down though.
