To photograph white-tailed deer, you have to be long on patience, but it’s well worth the time. In this video series, pro wildlife photographers Doug Gardner and Bill Lea take you to Cades Cove in the great Smoky Mountains National Park. They capture these beautiful animals in the foggy light of early morning and in the golden light of late afternoon. At one point, a black bear appears and chases off a large buck while the photographers capture the drama. Bill Lea, author of the book, CADES COVE, explains why this wonderful wildlife home is an ideal location for nature photographers. He believes that the alluring light is worth the experience.
