Shy Mule Deer

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.

You gotta love those antlers. Good thing you waited around.
