Species: White-tailed deer | Location: Lake County, Illinois, USA
I was sat having breakfast with my husband in our kitchen early one morning last June when we suddenly saw something move in the flower bed which is a few meters from our kitchen window. This gorgeous little fawn that can't have been more than a day or two old stood up and looked in at us. Luckily I had my camera on hand and was able to take this shot before the fawn laid back down again waiting for mum to arrive back later on. We see deer in our yard most days but it was extra special to see this beautiful fawn.

About The Photographer
I have always loved nature, but my passion for photography developed much more recently. I was born in the UK and moved to Sweden in 2010. Inspired by the beauty of this country and its nature, I began my journey to become a nature photographer. My most memorable experience was a close encounter with a great grey owl. Being just a few metres away from this beautiful bird that I had always dreamt of seeing in the wild was phenomenal and moved me to tears. I had one of the images that I took of a great grey owl published in the BBC Wildlife Magazine. While in Sweden I completed a Diploma in Photography. In 2012 I moved to North America, and while I was sad to leave Sweden, I was excited to explore a different country and its nature. I am an avid birdwatcher, and the prospect of being able to photograph so many new species of birds was very exciting to me. I am a member of the North Shore Camera Club in Illinois where I regularly compete and have won several awards. I exhibit my photographs locally and have just set up Emma England Nature Photography as a business. I would like my images to convey my passion for nature and hope that they inspire people to appreciate the beauty of the planet on which we live.
