[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Certainly You need to be very lucky to find a small White tailed deer newborn hiding in the between of a bush and a lot of thorns., I'm sure his mother was not far from there, so decided to take only two photos and let him rest until mom comes back.

Hola Primo,

Spotting this newborn was luck - managing such a good shot was skill. He is adorable and precious and in a cute snuggly position. I'm sure you are right and mom had her eye on him. The face and the fur are wonderful. I love the cute ear, nose and eye. The brush looks familiar but we have only Mule Deer in ours.


Beautiful picture Luis. You don't see a halo of thorns too often. TFS Trevor

Hola Luis,
Buena foto, extremandamente natural y un momento mágico, la actitud de este pequeño es realmente cautivante. Buen trabajo, un poco bajo de contraste (creo). Pero evidentemente una foto con un contenido maravilloso. Saludos, Gracias por compartir, Jesús

Hello Luis,
Beautiful photo of this newborn deer. Lucky person you are. Good sharpness, POV and DOF.

Hi Luis,
it is very well composed, your newborn deer. And the light shines through the ears, cute. My compliments to this one, Luis.

Hallo Luis
This image do not need a lot of words. It speaks for itself. How lucky you have been to firstly see this little one and secondly to have been able to capture it, even if it just was a shot or two. A tender moment indeed, and I thank you kindly for sharing. Best regards.

Hola Luis,
bonita captura y gran momento,
buen toque de color y nitides,
saludos amigo,

Dear Luis,
You are truly lucky to have seen the newborn White tailed deer, and we on TrekNature are lucky to see it thanks to you showing it to us!

I once attended the birth of a little impala (on our farm outside Hoedspruit, Limpopo - from our tame impala ewe) and it is quite an emotional experience!

Thank you for showing us this documentary,
Warm Greetings from South Africa

Hola Luis

Verdaderamente cuando ves algo asi le harías multitud de fotos y de todos los puntos posibles, pero tambien hay que pensar en el animal, que al verde se siente asustado. Esta es una foto muy bonita, con todo el alrededor del venado de esa planta semi seca, una foto muy agradable.

Un saludo de Antonio
