[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a young fawn I found feeding on ferns ,on an early October day,a couple of seasons ago.It was a beautiful day with warm temperatures.This was in a forested area creating diffused light and shadows.
The catch light in the eyes is naturally occurring and the flash fired.
Not much done post on this shot,the levels were adjusted and a slight crop done.I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed taking it and remembering the trek in the woods that day.
Thanks for looking.

Hi Rob, what a pretty scene - the colours are very eye-catching, but that fawn - what a beauty he is. And I lobe how he is surrounded by the ferns

Hi Rob,
This is so nice to see you are back!
And with a wonderful photo of a lovely fawn!
Impeccable warm colors, clarity and details! He seems so alive with his bright eyes and snout.
Excellent composition using the ferns in foreground for creating a good depth.
You can be proud of this capture, it could figurate in great Naturalist Book! Annie

Nice job.

Despite the very centred composition, it works well, with good sharpness and DOF. A shame about the fern leaf in front of its face but nothing can be done about things like that!

Very nice job

Bonjour Rob,

Great shot. Clear sharp details, the burst of flash created beautiful catch light in the eyes, beautifull light all over, splendid shallow DOF, excellent shot and TFS.


Hi Rob
This young fawn has a very sweet face. I like all the different background colours and textures, and the way they create a natural frame. Excellent composition.
