Deer, a trio

Thought I'd join in the recent fun with a post of this mom deer and her two youngsters, probably born last year. They're fairly safe here, despite mountain lion warnings, so long as they stay away from the fronts of automobiles. The photo required an embarrassing amount of processing, but their pose was so cute I just had to post.



Oh, forgot to add camera info: 510 plus 70-300, plus, I think, the fl36 flash (rather than pop up)?

Nice to see deer amongst greenery rather than the orange/brown tones of the highlands.

Re: Deer, a trio

Thanks, all, for taking a look. The embarrassing part about this photo is I spied them while driving by (or bicycling, I can't remember), and after a quick halt and gear fumble was so determined to get a little glimmer in their eyes that I said a prayer and popped up the flash without looking at the settings. Turns out the flash was at full power, which turned the younger deers' eyes into blue orbs. Whole photo was almost black, too, from under exposure. After mucking about with Lightroom and bitmap editors, I finally cloned the mama deer's eyes into her youngsters' eyes. Then I thought I was done, so printed some cards. A day later noticed a whitish area of foliage that appeared to be balancing on the middle deer's nose. More cloning. More lessons learned, maybe.
The trees are oaks, live oaks, which are evergreen (unlike the black and white oaks here) and thanks to a bit (a lot) of rain, grasses are coming up fresh and green.
