Deer beds

9/10 3698
Remember the deer bed photograph from my friend Abbey's beautiful home?

Here's the story behind it: Photographer Katherine Wolkoff followed deer trails in Block Island to photograph deer beds. Apparently, deer press down the vegetation to make a sleeping place where predators won't see them. They never use the same bed twice, but the imprints can last for a few days. Katherine found the experience incredibly emotional, and she chose to make her prints 40x50 inches, almost life size. How moving, don't you agree?
