This darling little Whitetail Buck seemed to smile for me while taking his picture. Even in his eyes, you can see reflections of the trees and sky behind me.

    Oh wow! This is absolutely stunning! What an incredible capture, Vickie! You’re right, he’s looking right at you and giving you a smile. How close were able to get to take this photo! Instant favorite!!!

  • wow Blair, you are fast! Thanks so much. I was very close to him and used the zoom lens as well. I would say about 12-15 ft. from him. I wish you could see all the photos I took of him, this is my favorite.

    How spectacular hun, he seems to be telling you something. Such an innocent look on him, begging you to tell the hunters to stay away maybe this year…..Wonderful shot Vickie.

  • isn’t he a handsome little guy. He is safe from the hunters in Whiteshell Park, thank goodness

    This is beautiful Vickie. Love his expression and the depth of field is great. Terrific image.

  • thanks Pam, I could have watched this little darling all day. He gave me more than this, but I just chose one to show. Don’t want to tire you of my wildlife, lol. Thanks again.
