Kissing Buddies


It was dark on the meadow. The sky heavy with clouds with the rising sun hidden behind. The bucks were out and slowing winding down from a fun evening out.

Big Meadows on Skyline Drive in Shenandoah National Park is known for its healthy deer population. Protected from hunting, these deer have become quite used to the tourist paparazzi and calmly walk by as if one wasn’t there.
