I ♥ Faces Contest Entry - June 28th

I Faces ( is a great website with a weekly photo contest. This week's theme is "Pets" -  Okay, so this is not exactly a pet but I currently don't own a pet :( so this will have to do!

Now for the story behind the photo...

I was out for my evening walk when I happened upon this little guy - so well camouflaged by his white spots I nearly stepped on him. He was so still - obviously, he didn't hear me approach. Thinking he might be dead, I instinctively said aloud, "Awww," (as in, "Awwww, poor thing!"). The fawn immediately sat up, momentarily frozen in fear. I don't know who was more startled - him or me! I managed to snap just one photo before he ran away. It's one of my favorites.

Technical details...
Canon EOS 5D camera with an EF 70-200mm /2.8L IS USM lens. Focal length: 78mm. Exposure: ISO 100, 1/100,/3.5.

Processed in Photoshop CS3.  I did a little bit of exposure & color correction, cloned out an unsightly concrete curb that was in the top left corner of the photo, and ran Pioneer Woman's 'Lovely & Ethereal' action on it.
