Lincoln, Montana is a great wintering range for deer. Of course, they live there all year round, you can see them wandering the streets of town all summer. We got photos of these does just outside Lincoln.

When I first see the deer in winter's snow, I think, "How cute!" I see the beauty of the deer, the graceful shape of their slim legs, the huge liquid eyes... After that, you see how deep the snow is, how they struggle to get through it and the strength they have in their slim sinewy bodies. There's a world of knowledge in their brains, on how to survive. What plants will sustain them through the cold, best places for shelter, how to avoid the coyotes and wolves, how to teach their fawns to live through a winter. They're absolutely amazing creatures.

Any of my photos are for sale as giclee prints, I charge $25 for an 8X10 photo. I also sell reference photos for artists for $5 apeice.
