Doe, a Deer... by AuntDot

Currently unavailable for purchase

My husband was driving on the entrance road to Rainbow Springs State Park, Dunnellon, Florida, when we spotted this doe just within the park fence. We stopped so I could get a shot from car window. I saw her look behind her and realized she had a fawn partially hidden behind some trees. I was happy to get a shot of both of them. ( See Doe and Fawn in Dunnellon) It was a cloudy day with on again off again rain this 4th of July. The deer have free access to the park entrance, but probably feel safer within the park boundaries, so they are often seen there.

FEATURED in Florida the Sunshine State, July 5, 2013

Having lived most of my life in the northeast U.S., I am enjoying retired life in sunny Florida. I enjoy photographing many different kinds of things, but especially flowers and animals, including the beautiful birds found here in Florida. I am currently using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D camera, a Canon 55-250 mm telescopic zoom lens, and a Sony P10 Cyber-shot digital camera. My newest acquisition is a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, a point and shoot which I will be carrying in my purse.
