[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Rosie and I spent a weekend away at West Virginia's North Bend State Park. This is such a beautiful place in the foot hills of Ritchie County and is home to an abundance of White-tailed Deer.

We love to travel the back roads where traffic is light and the wildlife is often seen in their natural habitat. This particular doe was feeding just off the road at the edge of a large tract of forest land.

The coats of our white-tails have a reddish cast in the spring and summer months, making them easy to spot in contrast to the green grass and tree foliage.

Once fall arrives they obtain their grayish brown winter coats allowing them to blend in with the browns and grays of the season.

Crisp sharp excellent shot, just the perfect moment and surprising for me that how marius-secan tracked its gender.

It still has the lovely summer coat, Ron.
Beautiful image in the natural habitat of this species of the Deer.
It seems to be oblivious of your presence.
Thanks and regards.

Bela foto com nitidez muito boa e composição satisfatória meus parabéns.

Hi Ron,
Lovely photo, excellent clarity, perfect details and simple, yet good composition. Very fine shot showing the doe in their natural habitat, however, white balance IMHO slipped a touch to cyan, but just a touch, indeed. Congrats, anyway, as everything else is brilliant on the image.
Kind regards from Ireland, László
