15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
All Ears

All Ears-This doe was 60 feet from me and all ears after she laid down in some brush to hide and couldn't resist popping her head up after I purposely rustled some dry leaves on the ground in front of the tripod I quickly set up. I was on my usual bike ride down a path near the Sacramento River and had all the gear to get a close up portrait of her in her natural surroundings
