I photographed a Whitetail Fawn in soybeans at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma.

The one thing I know about Deer at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge is that they like soybeans.

How I Got The Photo:

This Fawn was on the west side of the Sally Jones causeway in the field on the north side of the road.

My camera and lens were resting on a bean bag draped over the open window of my pickup.
