A deer under the Northern Lights

During the November 3rd geomagnetic storm, the Aurora Borealis were dancing across the entire sky west of Calgary near Bragg Creek. Desirée and I were outside watching them, mesmerized by the performance, for 3 hours. I didn’t know this deer was nearby on the edge of the forest when I was shooting. It was fun to discover her in this image when I was working through the set this afternoon.

    • Definitely. I must have made enough noise to draw attention but not so much to scare her away.
