In a misty field…

A whitetail deer tastes the air in a misty field in Bragg Creek, Alberta, Canada.  June 2022.

A humid afternoon slipped away into dusk with peels of fog rolling over the long grass inviting the darkness of night in earlier. This whitetail walked past Desirée and I a few minutes before I took this photograph. When the visibility dropped away, she raised her head to sniff the air. She wasn’t on edge, her tail stayed down, it seemed just a focus on one sense with another being curtailed. Her profile created a beautiful shape and the moment felt calm and intimate.

    What a gorgeous shot! This deer was either totally unaware of your presence or felt that you posed no harm. She’s an innocent and beautiful creature, almost mystical as she appears out of the fog.
