How could I not post this photo for Mother's Day?! I spotted this doe giving her fawn a bath early yesterday morning at Myakka River State Park in Sarasota. What a treat to get a peek into Bambi's typically private bath time. While I'm quite certain Mom was aware of my presence, she was so focused on her morning cleaning ritual, she didn't pay any attention to me. In fact, bath time went on long enough I had an opportunity to shoot some video with my DSLR (click HD in the viewer for optimum quality):
So precious! By the way, this is the first time a video has been posted on SDP. Occasionally, the SDP Editor-in-Chief likes to shake things up.
Big news here on the still photography front: the SDP Purchasing Department signed off yesterday on the acquisition of a new lens -- a Tamron 18-270mm. Very exciting -- I can't wait to take it out for a test run! Hope everyone is enjoying the weekend.
