Western Maine’s wildlife captured by area photographers

"While in the Rangeley area a few days ago I was lucky to be able to get some pictures of a family of deer. I noticed a couple of young ones nipping playfully at each other. Suddenly mom had had enough (of me I think?). She jumped over a snow bank. But before the young ones would follow her, it looked like one leaned over and kissed the other one and they were gone." - Jim Knox of Wilton

"When the air traffic controller fell asleep!" - Jane Naliboff of Vienna
