    While hiking through the woods today at Ridway State Park, I found myself surrounded by our woodland friends. They didn't seem to care that I was there or not. These two were the most captivating of the group.

    Wow Amy - this is a fun set. Very nicely captured with clean details on your subjects and behaviors you couldn't choreograph if you wanted to :D

    The only downside to a shooting session like this one is what do you do for an encore?

    This is a very nice set Amy, but that last is the winner.

    Lol...well, I'm not sure if this would be considered an encore. This little guy either has rabies or just got done drinking his mamma's milk...or maybe a real bad cold???

    All are nice Amy but the 5th one for me although any of the first 3 would be brilliant if it were not for the out of focus foliage but I know how hard it is to get tree shots without odd bits of tree getting in the way and adding wild animals must make everything much more tricky. Ken

    These are so cute Amy! My favorite is when the one deer is sticking it's head under the other and sticking its tongue out at you. That one makes me laugh! :) All of the rest are very nice and enjoyable to view.

    Great set of images - you could not have posed them better yourself I am thinkin'. And nice clean images too. I find it hard to get shots without LOTS of intruding branches, leaves, people, etc. You have succeeded wonderfully here.
