Been on a bit of a hiatus shooting a lot, and staying off the internet. Here's one from this week. I've had camera trap deployed for the better part of a month to get these little guys. The woods are so thick right now that it's very difficult to see fawns much less set up a blind photograph them. I also don't like to bother them during such a vulnerable time. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I'd get such a shot as this. Mom, both fawns, and the kicker being they're faces aren't covered by the tall vegetation. No crop, full image, I asked them to stand like this lol

A good family portrait, Drew, and nice flash work. Great depth-of-field – sharp from front to rear. Congratulations on getting all open faces without obstructing vegetation. Great job!

Very nice camera trap result, Drew. Perfect dof for this lovely woodland family scene.
