Henry, the whitetailed deer, is a family member. My son-in-law is a taxidermist, and Henry is one of his creations.

I put Henry back in his natural environment today…

I am wife, mom and grandma and enjoy all three parts of me. What started out as a hobby became a full blown passion for photographing anything. I am involved in 10 microstock sites and 4 online card stores where I sell my images on greeting cards. I also sell my cards in 3 local stores. After many hours and sticking with my dream, I am finally making decent money.

    Hi Maria, I just found you in the featured works… this kind of creation is very much like some of the silly things I’ve put together. I will definitely have to keep my eye on you! :) It’s probably not a recommended method of camouflage, though :) Ted
