I’ve always loved photography but couldn’t afford to play with it until digital came along. Now it’s my favorite thing to do…my goal with the camera is to bring beauty and joy to the viewer, with the hope that the wonder of God’s creation shines through these images…and of course play with a few images that are just plain fun:)

I live in Vernal, Utah, surrounded by beautiful scenery….

    Delightful capture!

  • Thanks! This is the only critter that would stand still long enough for me to grab the camera yesterday:) I also saw a tiny spotted fawn with its mom, and lots of elk, including a cow with a spotted calf (elk), but they were faster than I was:)

    What a lovely capture. These deer have such big ears … so cute. Barb

  • Thanks! They’re usually not as spooky as whitetails, either:)
