Whitetail Deer, Courting in a Winter Wonderland

This Whitetail buck has chosen this doe as his mate, and courted her in this meadow during an early winter snowstorm. If all goes well, next June there will be a new set of twin Whitetail fawns frolicking around this meadow!

Thanks for my new-to-me Sigma 60-600mm superzoom for making this image possible. After shooting head shot portraits, I realized that I could zoom all the way out to capture a wider view and get the whole scene in the frame. It's pretty cool to be able to shoot tight close up wildlife portraits and wide scenic snowscapes with the same lens!
