Deer Hide

Photograph by Jeremy Baker, National Geographic Your Shot

“This situation happened to come to fruition due to my five-year-old's love of the outdoors,” says Your Shot member Jeremy Baker, who captured this shot in Minot, North Dakota. Baker’s son had asked to go for a drive to look for wildlife to photograph. “[While] driving down a secluded dirt road ... I noticed a doe moving through the dried up sunflowers, trying to hide from me. I turned off my truck and used the window as a tripod and snapped away, as she was curious enough to show me her vulnerable side.”

Nice shot!  Those ripe sunflowers are a big draw for anything that will eat them.

Love, love, love this photograph!  I have a sunflower seed head that I got at local farmer's market... one in which a deer had taken a bite out of it.  Would have loved to get that pic!  Well done!

Great shot.  I bet your son always remembers this moment so two treasures in one.
