    Doe with bumps on her head

    Looks like she could be a antlered doe or at least a button doe! BTW I know for a fact she is a doe, I took a shot as she was bounding away. ..

    Should make her easy to spot Great capture.
    It is light that reveals, light that obscures, light that communicates. It is light I "listen"
    to. The light late in the day has a distinct quality, as it fades toward the darkness of
    evening. After sunset there is a gentle leaving of the light, the air begins to still, and a
    quiet descends. I see magic in the quiet light of dusk. I feel quiet, yet intense energy in
    the natural elements of our habitat. A sense of magic prevails. A sense of mystery. It is
    a time for contemplation, for listening - a time for making photographs.

    That's pretty cool, especially if you can follow her through the lens over the next few years. Not sure I've ever seen any documentation on a farm raised antlered doe, or any antlered doe, for that matter, through it's early years. It could make ya famous(er).

    Well I hope to see her a few more times, there is another photographer who lives in the area she is in so maybe between the two of us we will get some more shots of her.

    all does have little bumps on their head, that could just be abnormally large bumps but not likely , most likely it is an abnormal hair pattern. That is the hair pattern typical of a buck, so it is a good chance it is a doe with low estrogen/high testostrone levels.

    It's been a good run, but do to my day job and personal reasons, I have shut down the taxidermy studio thank you to all who have supported me in the past.
