Doe Feeding In Cornfield

By | July 16, 2020

This Doe was in a cornfield eating the leaves off of the plants when I photographed it. This was at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma. Most of the corn is over head high now.

When I first started photographing deer in the cornfields years ago, I didn’t know that they would eat the leaves from the corn plant. I thought they would only eat corn on the cob or loose corn kernels.
