Picture City South: “Oh, Dear!”

Second Place Wildlife & Nature by Jeff Liss

Photographer Jeff Liss  writes about his photo Oh, Dear! which won second place in the photo contest’s “Wildlife and Nature” category:

“Oh, Dear actually found me while I was shooting photos last spring at Westwood Nature Center in St. Louis Park. Occasionally deer are found foraging for food at the nature center. This one spotted me before I saw him. As he was checking me out, I raised my camera and grabbed the shot. He then scampered off, and I walked away pleased to have taken his portrait.
“I have been a photographer for 45 years now, having begun as a mass communications major at Moorhead State College. My pursuit of photos and love of the art form have never waned. I get out at least a couple of times each week to take photographs around the Twin Cities and the surrounding metropolitan and rural areas. For me, photography isn’t just a hobby—it’s a passion.”
