18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World

This beautiful, young deer washed a sense of calm over me at the end of a long and challenging work day. The innocence of this moment, in the midst of our current global pandemic, domestic turmoil, and my own burdens brought me to tears. So grateful I was able to capture and preserve it.
