Super capture Debra! You caught them in a beautiful pose and they do look very healthy, something that hopefully will stand them in good stead through those temperature swings. Beautiful image..

Yves Langlois

Great compo and lighting Debra. They are so cute with their curious eyes. Tell you, I would make it a Chrismast card easily. Expressive and very pleasant to look at. Nice, nice.

Debra Plett

Thanks Yves, it was a nice sunny day and the two deer were in a bit of clearing allowing the light to nicely fall on them. to be truthful I think the sun was warming them a bit.

Harold Fleming

Two good looking does, Debra. The snow helps to cast light onto them and the light shows the thick texture in the coats. They are certainly paying attention to you and gave you a nice pose. Very good photo.

Debra Plett

Thanks Harold, the two were definitely curious but also a little sceptical.

Barb Walker

Beautiful shot, thanks for sharing!

Debra Plett

Thanks Barb.

At -31C with the wind chill these two siblings are staying close to each other, mom was about 500 yards away. Our coldest day so far this fall a drastic change from -3C yesterday. The deer on the right has learned well from Mom just as I was about to leave she decided to attempt a half hearted foot stamp.
