Out for a drive after a new snow I was hoping to catch some wildlife.... this Whitetail buck was along a highway when I spotted him, I was convinced I would never get a good photo of him as Whitetails are notorious for bounding away as soon as they realize they have been seen. I had to stop slowly as the road was covered in icy snow, back up while grabbing my camera and praying he didn't take off - and miraculously he did not. He continued to forage even as I quietly got out of the truck and walked around to the back for a better angle.... even though I live in a wildlife rich area I am always thrilled to see them, and feel incredibly blessed when they allow me to hang out with them for a bit if time!
