The Three Graces
White-Tailed Deers
Odocoileus virginianus
For Mike

During all winter I photographed these animals every time I went to the Ecomuseum. And on all the photos we can admire the presence of this magnificent fence behind them.
I ask you for forgiveness for this improper presence.

Those animals
* are the most widely distributed and the most numerous of all North America’s large animals.
* leave their fawn unattended for hours at a time.
* may have difficulty surviving the winter, particularly if there are too many deers competing for food or if snow is deep.
* occasionally get their antlers hopelessly entangled with those of another male during a mating season battle, resulting in the slow death of both animals.

Thanks for looking at them.

Nice Shot Luc,
They all seem very interested in something. Nice composition, details and sharpness.
It is unfortunate about the fence though.
Thanks for posting

Very nice composition!
Trio looking at the same point.
Details,DOF and sharpness are great!

Nice capture Luc. Isn't amazing how they can sit in the snow and not get a frozen butt. They look very healthy and well cared for. Good sharp image. Snow has been handled superbly. Well done!

Nice shot Luc, I just don't like the grill on BG.
Well done.

Ah, Grace, Grace and Grace. This looks like mother and her 2 babes. Lovely composition Luc. Colours, details and sharpness all good. So you still have snow in Quebec? TFS.

They all look pretty...
The expression on their face is like smiling :) very good shot but I agree others about the fence...
Thanks for sharing

Nice shot Luc! Fence aside, (you're forgiven!)you have all three with focused attention showing their "good" side/profile. Their mugs have a lot of cute factor seen this close. Well done!

Three wonderful reasons to have posted this scene in spite of the fence. Your lighting was well handled and the deer are nicely detailed. These creatures seem so tranquil and graceful, it is a joy to behold. Thank you.

Très jolie photo de cette famille qui a l'air d'être intéressée par quelque chose. Juste dommage le grillage.
Mais, même au Canada, on ne peut pas tout avoir.

Hello Luc, very nice job, the threesome look great together and I like the way they are all starting at the same thing. The details and comsposition are nice, the only nit is the fence in the BG. Very good work.

Hi Luc!
Great pose you captured. I love your photo with it's cuteness and charm.
