White-tailed Deer Bonding Moment

Greetings fellow nature lovers! I’m back with some new wildlife photos to share from my recent trip to the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma. Today I have two special photos of white-tailed deer to showcase.

The first is an intimate moment between a doe and her fawn. In the photo, the two are nuzzling close. I was able to capture their bond and affection for one another in this shot. Even though they were hidden in the thick brush, I was able to snap this special interaction from the road in my truck.

The second photo features the same fawn, this time by herself. She is peering out from the bushes, her ears perked and eyes attentive. I love the curious and innocent look on her face. Though she is in the thick foliage, you can see her white spots stand out.

I feel fortunate to have witnessed and photographed these beautiful deer in their natural habitat at Sequoyah. It’s a terrific refuge for wildlife watching and photography. The wooded areas and wetlands provide excellent shelter and resources for the local white-tailed deer.

I hope you enjoy this glimpse into the lives of these amazing animals as much as I did capturing it.
