Thank you Jeff

Yves Langlois

I like very much the framing you did here. Including the big tree, its long branches and the red berries. You wrote a very nice story too. As usual, the zooming option gives a much better lighting to the picture. Well done.

I was hoping that the doe would move a little closer to the Manitoba sign in the background. This was the best angle I could get keeping my distance from her. Thx Yves I appreciate your comments always.

Heather Mellon

Very nice composition and detail in this beautiful image and I get the sense that she knows she's safe in your company or she would have disappeared quickly. You captured her beauty and that of the remaining autumn colours so well here.

Debra Plett

Thx Heather. I will check back on her every couple of days. This is a bit of a busier part of the park so hopefully coyotes are not in the area.

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.
