14th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
A Leap of Faith
A doe leaping majestically through the air: Early morning in northern, Virginia, while walking,
I often see this lovely deer enjoying her breakfast in a private, grassy area under the shade of aged trees. Having with my camera with me each day, I have photographed her many times as she always looked so peaceful. However, on this specific day, she heard something in the woods behind her, turned around and I just started taking shots with my camera when she started running away...and then a big leap over the wrought iron fence she flew. It was a magical moment when I saw her
effortless leap through the air.
