  1. pure and simple beauty… I loved the sika deer in Nara and in Hokkaido… btw, I miss Nihon every day… ❤

    have a great week, my very best and good luck in all your endeavours…

    • Thank you, my friend ❤ I imagine you had a wonderful time in Nara and Hokkaido 🙂 It was very special to see these deer in the forests of Mt. Fuji 🙂

      I hope you have a good week too!

    • Thank you Rajiv-san. It really was cool to see wild deer in the forest 🙂 To answer your question, it’s been busy times with the “daily grind” 😦

      But, a new post is planned for later today (Wednesday) and also next Wednesday 😀

  2. There is something magical about seeing ‘babes in the woods’ and of all the little creatures, I think the sight of a little fawn is the one that makes everyone reflect on how beautiful nature can be… great shot Takami, you frame them so well in this shot too! Cheers to a great summer.

    • Hello Randall,
      Oh yes, it was something special (and a real treat) to see this little fawn completely at home in the presence of its parents in the woods. Something I often daydreamed about as a child – having a ‘Bambi’ experience in the forest – and what an unexpected treat it was on this day. It’s thanks to the 600mm lens from hubby that I could keep a distance and make the shot without having to rely on trimming or anything fancy. So I guess all the thanks go to him 😉 I hope you’re having a good summer. The rainy season has ended in Tokyo, which means very hot weather!

  3. Such a sweet, great shot… I like the fact that they seem so calm, like in perfect stillness …
    Sending love and best wishes for your week ahead, dear Takami. Aquileana 🌟

    • Thank you dear Aquileana ❤ It was a special moment, to observe them in their natural environment. As you say, they looked so calm and at peace in their home. I hope you are having a good summer 🙂

  4. Awwww… so sweet Takami! It’s always such a special treat to see fawns in the woods. I love their spots and they look so peaceful. So good for the soul to see them. Very nice shot. Hope all is going well, my friend. As always, I love hearing from you. Sending good wishes to you and your husband. Enjoy your summer! :))

    • Hello dear Jeannie ❤
      So happy to hear from you! Yes, it was a very special treat to see fawns in the woods. It was my first time experiencing it, and what a treat it was. I love their spots too. The deer here keep their spots, even when fully grown (!), and they look absolutely adorable on the babies. It was thanks to the 600mm super duper "bazooka" lens that hubby gave me last year, that I was able to make this shot. So all credit and thanks go to him 😉 I am glad you and your partner are having a good summer. Will be in touch again soon!

  5. We had a very young fawn curled up at the base of a tree on our property one day. We were having our roof replaced and the roofers found her. I figured her mother had put her there that morning so she could go eat somewhere, but the roofers arrived early and made a lot of noise so she wouldn’t return. We went out to dinner that night and our darling little fawn was gone when we got back. Happiness! I didn’t want to have to call the wildlife group.

    • Hello dear Noelle,
      What an experience it must have been to see the baby right on your property! I am glad that she was reunited with her mother and that all went well 🙂 I hope you are having a lovely summer.

    • Hello friend! Apologies for the delayed response, and thank you so much for your lovely comment. It was a special moment indeed, and (like many good things) was completely unexpected. I was able to keep a good distance from them, thanks to the wonderful 600mm lens my husband generously gave me as a birthday gift last year. Without it, this shot would have been impossible. I hope all is well with you, and your beautiful city.

      • Well you certainly are making good use of your birthday gift. As for my city, everything is well, and the summer is finally setting in after a few false starts, so there are a lot more happy faces on the streets these days. I hope you are enjoying your weather also.

    • Hello dear Helen ❤
      It was a special encounter indeed. As you say, forests hold many surprised and moments that seem like pure magic. I felt like a child again. I hope you are having a wonderful summer 🙂

    野生の鹿と出会われたのでしょうか?じっと眺めてT Ibara Photo さんが安全かどうか考えているようです(^_-)-☆

    • wakasahs15th様
      お早うございます。そうです!先日富士山麓で生まれて初めて野生の鹿(しかも親子!)に出会いました。向こうも視線を逸らさずにじっとこちらを見ていました(^^;)
