Field Notes Print Info

OK, so we’re in Custer State Park in SD in search of some cool critters when we spot this pair of fawns. One had lost her spots, but this little gal still had a few left.

The brush was thick and the light was fading so it wouldn’t be long before we were forced to move on. The fawn just kept milling along, seldom looking up – or only looking our way when there was a forest of brush between us.

She finally gets to this spot, the light is sweet, and we need something to happen. I see those cool plants on either side of her and it looks like it was just MADE for this shot! Unfortunately, no amount of my whopping and hollering seemed to get her attention (typical of park deer), but man, something happened behind us that caught her eye. To this day, I’m not sure what it was (as far as we could tell, it was just a hill), but I’m glad it got her attention.

She looked up and I got EXACTLY one good click.

About Our Prints....

I currently sell individual prints only. Each image is custom printed in house by me on our commercial grade inkjet printer. Each print is individually inspected and carefully packaged for shipment.

Please note that if you'd like another type of print (canvas for example) or another frame style, we can certainly accommodate you, just use the contact us page and we'll customize the artwork to make it perfect for your home.

(Note - we are no longer offering framed prints. The potential for damage in transit was very high and the shipping for large framed prints was outrageous, sometimes costing over $100 for larger pieces. Additionally, we've found our clients seem happier when they can work with their own local framing shop.)


Our framed prints are guaranteed for as long as you own them against wear, fading, or deterioration. Loose prints are also guaranteed for as long as you own them provided you have them framed under glass using archival materials. We want you to LOVE your prints, so we offer a refund as long as the print or framed print is returned in like new condition within 30 days.


All prints have a signature in the corner, usually the lower right hand when possible.


Delivery time varies and depends on a number of factors, but we always strive to get your prints delivered to you as quickly as possible. I personally inspect each and every piece before it leaves our building. If I'm out of town taking more photos, it can cause a delay, but a good rule of thumb is that a loose print will ship within 2 weeks and a framed print within 3 weeks. That time is significantly shorter if I'm in town at the time the order is placed. If you need a print done by a certain date, you can contact me and I'll be happy to give you an estimated delivery date.


We are now offering quantity discounts if you are interested in two or more pieces. Simply contact me with the sizes and names of the images you are interested in and I will be happy to get you a quote. The more pieces you order, the better the discount.

Thanks for your interest!

    Love this one. We have at least 10 or 12 deer in our yard early morning and evening every day. Would you believe that’s in the city limits?! We also have turkeys, bunnies, etc.
    Just noticed the list of colors found in the photo – like that, too. Very helpful with watercolor, etc. Thanks for doing that. ab
