Shenandoah National Park 2014 slide show (45)
In June 2014, I visited Shenandoah National Park, Big Meadow area. This is the time to photograph the fawns. This year for some unknown reason I only saw two fawns in the meadow and they were difficult to photograph. I focused on the Black Bear and saw at least twelve individual bears on this trip. I also focused on the birds and flowers, but the Bears won... Bears 12, Fawn 2. Enjoy.
