Portrait of a Young Deer

Yesterday, in the woods off of Eagleson Road I found this young deer searching for food in the early spring.  This photograph was taken with my Canon 7D Mark II and a Sigma 150-600 mm lens set at 300 mm.  The shutter speed was set at 1/400 second, the aperture was set at f6.3 and the ISO was set at 250 in the early morning light.
