Young Buck

Posted by
Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 17 April 2013 in Animal & Insect.

Shortly after beginning the hike, I encountered this young fellow who was not spooked at all by my presence. I hope he stayed in the national monument.

A most fortunate encounter! So close and so lovely. One can distinguish every hair in the fur. I like also the contrast with the grass and the textures of the trees trunks. Well framed.

Japanalia from Yokohama, Japan

I bet IT was wondering what kind of "animal" was looking at it! most probably such an animal never had the opportunity to see what people can do! (At least some among people!)
You were very much "on the spot" with your camera!

Nice shot of this unafraid deer. The ones around my place are so used to people that it's become a hazard to them.
