Alone in the Storm

Alone in the Storm

Shiloh, Tennessee

I shot yesterday afternoon while the short-lived snowstorm brought more snow to the area. I had finished, and packed up, and was leaving the park, when I looked left, and saw this animal watching me.
She stood in one place long enough for me to remove my Canon 50/1.4 and replace it with my new 135/2.0 L lens. I took two shots.
It was almost like she and I knew what each of us was thinking...

Great capture, Michael. Quick action on your part!
The falling snow really makes this image, in my view.
