I love this color photograph series by Katherine Wolkoff. These are imprints in grass made by sleeping deer. This nature photography appeals to my interest in nesting and how (human) animals create and define home.

Wolkoff found these deer beds by following the paths of the deer to the nests where they spent the night. Each time she came upon a bed she felt as if the deer had just departed, leaving its warm impression on the earth. She was always aware of their proximity. The photographs are at once a physical reminder of a living breathing animal and an abstract rendering of a field of grass. -Sasha Wolf Gallery, New York
