Mule Deer (Odocoileus hemionus)
Location: Estes Park, Colorado, USA
While driving, I saw some deer grazing in a meadow near the road. Armed with my ever-present camera, I stopped and got out of the car to photograph them. The deer spotted me instantly and trotted into a stand of pine trees that bordered the meadow. I waited a long time for them to re-emerge into the meadow so that I could get some clear shots, but they would not cooperate. I had to be satisfied with a few images of the deer peeking at me through the tree branches.
