Oh, Deer

I didn't feel like I saw all that many deer this spring, but this fall has been a completely different story. I've been seeing deer everywhere! Here are some photos from three different deer encounters last week.

While walking at British Camp, a mom and her two twin fawns from this year were grazing and nibbling at the crab apples that had fallen on the ground under the trees:


Near False Bay, these three deer were on the alert when a fox came walking across the field. I like how they are different colors - one dark, one medium, and one light:


This doe paid me no mind as I sat down on a log to watch her come down a hillside towards me. When she got near the bottom of the slope she tried to reach out to grab some leaves off the branches of a tree that was growing at the bottom of the hill:


When she still wasn't able to reach, she came to the bottom of the hill and took a new approach - standing up on her back two legs! She couldn't care less about me as I watched her do this repeatedly to reach the branches:


Her reward? A mouth full of green leaves!
