Oh, they seem so soft and fuzzy! What a wonderful thing to happen in to. And and "A" thing, no less!

A stetly animal and well spotted. Much nicer to shoot one with a camera than a gun. It must be early in the season with those short antlers still covered with hide.

Beautiful! And that velvet on his young horns--all really touching to me who, if I could jump, always jump for joy when I see a deer in the wild.

How lovely to see them with their fresh antlers and to have your long lense ready. Deer are magical creatures.

What a lovely shot. Imagine being able to actually capture the fuzz on the antlers. Beautiful.
