Shenandoah + Discovery Channel

Shenandoah National Park, Virginia

 

About the photo:

A 7-8 month old Whitetail Fawn that was rooting through snow for acorns - I've been trying to get a decent face shot of a Whitetail for a long time and this one almost satisfies me - but really prefer to have a straight on look.

 

About the post:

I've been busting at the seams to tell this news!!! There's a good possibility that SNP may have some footage in an upcoming Discovery Channel documentary: WILD PLANET: NORTH AMERICA.

 

Wild Horizons is currently producing this seven-part landmark series for the Discovery Channel. I was contacted in December 2010 by Evie Wright, a UK-based documentary filmmaker with Wild Horizons. What's awesome to me is that she saw my SNP wildlife photos here on Flickr and that is what initiated our correspondence - isn't the Internet such a powerful medium?! So I am going to help them as much as possible while they are here and hopefully I can get them positioned into key areas for bears, bear cubs, coyotes, whitetail fawns, etc. to make it worthwhile for them. This is such a grand opportunity for Shenandoah to be on 'the big stage' - keep your fingers crossed that the wildlife cooperates!

Using the full power of cutting-edge film technology, Discovery Channel is teaming with Wild Horizons and Keith Scholey, formerly head of the BBC’s Natural History Unit, in a multiyear production deal to capture the world, continent by continent in high definition, as its never been seen before. Fully commissioned by Discovery Channel for premiere on its networks worldwide, WILD PLANET: NORTH AMERICA began filming in 2009 and will kick off the project.
