This Whitetail Fawn bedded near the road at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma. A Doe was with the Fawn but she was in a location difficult to photograph.

How I Got The Shot: Bedded Whitetail Fawn

The wind was blowing a branch in front of the Fawn and I had to time the shot to keep the branch out of the photo. The light was also poor, so I was shooting at a very low shutter speed but I had my camera on a beanbag so I thought I could get by with it.

I had my camera resting on a bean bag draped over the open window of my pickup.
