Capturing a Moment in the Wild: The Whitetail Doe and Fawn Reflection
While I was enjoying a peaceful morning on the Phillip Parks Memorial Fishing Pier at Reeves Slough in the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge, a Whitetail Doe and her Fawn emerged from the nearby woods and began to feed. It was early, around 7:00 A.M., and the tranquil waters provided a perfect mirror-like reflection of the beautiful creatures.
Just as I was about to snap the shot, a pair of Coyotes (Coyote Wading Slough) appeared on the scene, causing the Doe and her Fawn to quickly retreat back into the woods. Despite the unexpected interruption, I was still able to capture a stunning image of the Whitetail Doe and Fawn reflected in the water.
