Making Faces


Making Faces, originally uploaded by Hannibals Animals.



This late season fawn made quite the impression on me with all of the cute faces it made while foraging through the snow. It was just a few yards from me and stayed there long after the photo shoot was over.



Shutter timing is everything, and with alot of luck, capturing the tongue for the "cute" shot was what I was after.



Getting close-ups of this deers long eyelashes was the focus here, along with a nice catchlight in the eye.

WOW is right! I loved seeing the scenery around him reflected in the eye.

Awesome photos, I also like close ups, but sometimes I forget to pull back and get the entire picture. If you are like me watching this deer is as much fun as photographing it.

Wonderful shots and the last one I enlarged as you suggested and it's great, especially the reflection of the scenery in those beautiful eyes.
