What a nicely composed photo of these two deer. This image checks all the boxes. Well done

Debra Plett

Thanks very much Clifford, comments always appreciated.

Heather Mellon

Talk about picture perfect! As Yves stated, the evergreens really enhance this beautiful pair in a great pose. You get a real sense of the bond they share in this image.. and it is really beautiful. I got a similar shot of a mule deer doe with what I believe was her grown up fawn last summer, it's one of my favorite captures. Shots like this one are really special Debra..

Debra Plett

Thank you Heather for your kind feedback, it is very much appreciated. There was something about the gentleness to this shot that I really liked. I would love to see your shot of the mule deer.

Yves Langlois

Amazing shot Debra. Love those two close by. Greatly enhence by the green evergreens. The zoom option shows a perfect lighting that britten the white pattern in theyr face. I confirm you'r an artist for deer shots.

Debra Plett

Thank you Yves I really appreciate your kind comments. This is not our typical Manitoba landscape in December. Usually we have a lot more snow on the ground.

Jane LeBlanc

Still a nice photo of the two of them.

Debra Plett

Thanks Jane, something about the mood of this shot that I liked.

The younger doe on the left had been nuzzling her mother. I was hoping they would continue to show emotion while I took a photo but they had stopped by the time I was ready to take the shot.
