Looking Back at White-tailed Fawn Photos

As I was going through my photos from last August (2022), I came across a couple great shots of white-tailed deer fawns that I never got around to sharing.

The first is a photo of a fawn and doe standing near the edge of Dockery Field, an overgrown field next to the woods at Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma. I was driving along the auto tour road when I spotted them looking back at me. I stopped and was able to get this shot from inside my truck, with my camera and lens resting on a beanbag over the open window.

A few days later, I came across another fawn, this time in the wooded area southeast of Shug’s Pond, still at Sequoyah. I was close and managed to get a nice closeup of the fawn before it scampered off with its mother. It was pretty dark in the trees, but I’m still pleased with how this turned out.

Getting shots of white-tailed deer, especially the young fawns, is always a thrill for me. Their big eyes and speckled coats never get old. I feel fortunate I was able to capture these two last August before they lost their spots. Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge is one of my favorite places to photograph deer and other wildlife species, and I continue to visit regularly. I’m looking forward to going back again soon!

Let me know if you have any other questions about my white-tailed deer photography!
