Wow Debra! what an amazing shot. The pose of the lady sure express some romantic with a touch of seduction in the eye. Must have been a very good lighting because colours are stupendous. Very good that you placed her in front of the white background line. And you succeded in detailinh so perfectly the delicate strms in front of her. Good for your wall of fame.

Thx Yves for your comments. It’s was just before sunset and the area was getting some colourful rays as the sun went down. I have trouble with noise in low light conditions. I have been playing around with zebra setting and adjusting the exposure up or down according to the zebra pattern in the viewfinder.

A beautiful view of her through the textured grasses looking so young, alone and vulnerable. This image really tugs at my heart strings because it expresses so eloquently the challenges that wildlife often face very early in their lives. A wonderful capture and narrative Debra.

Yes it tugged at my heart as well to see her all alone. She was very aware of every noise around her. I did check back on her yesterday and she was in the same spot with no site of mom. She did run into the bush this time. Hopefully she stays safe until mom returns. Thanks for you comments Heather.

what a great picture and storyline. This image truly relates to your understanding of the situation

Thx Clifford, I have been reading up on the behaviour of the White-tailed deer.

I took these pictures yesterday evening just before sunset. This is in the same spot that I had captured a few images of the buck in the morning. I am thinking that her mother has left her on her own to be with the Buck for a few days. She is very cautious and every little noise that she hears she is brought to attention and looking around for danger. Her mother has taught her well.
