Hello Erwin,

Yes it was real cool to come upon the Doe feeding in the flowers. There was a Fawn but it moved off into the trees before I could get everything set up. I caught this shot on the opposite side of the island.

Thanks for the compliments!

Wow! Great lighting on the mist -- a magic moment indeed. A best of Oregon, Michael -- happy trails.

Thank you very much!

I kept having to make noise to get the deer to look in my direction. He was so far away I guess he felt safe enough to ignore me most of the time :)

Thanks for the compliments.

Beutiful picture, but our deer in Central Oregon are Mule Deer, or Blacktail. Thats a Mule deer.

Ya know you are right! I wonder why I called it a white tail. Hmmm.

Thanks for the heads up. I'll change the title but it wont show up on GE for about 30 days(ish)

No problem. Spent the day up at Sparks on Monday. Lots of deer feeding in the evening. Tons of great photo ops.
