Joan and I spent Friday and Saturday in Shenandoah Park looking for and photographing deer and butterflies and scenery. The weather was predicted to be partly cloudy and warm, but it was heavily overcast and we experienced some rain and heavy fog. I welcomed the overcast skies as it provides even filtered light for photography. We had fun on Friday with a couple of very large bucks and then in the evening we watched and photographed a number of does and fawns.

The above buck was one of a pair that we found in one of our favorite spots. I followed the two through the woods for a couple of hundred yards as they fed along. the second one is below and I believe I photographed him last fall in the Meadow. He has distinctive brow tines.

One doe and fawn spent quite a bit of time in front of me and actually almost walked right up to me.
