Deer seem to make lots of appearances here on 'Nature Tales and Camera Trails' so I thought I would contribute a few photos of my own. In the town where I live I see deer several times a week -- either hanging out in the woods near our neighbourhood, walking around in someone's yard, or unfortunately, running across the street in front of me while I'm driving.
These photos are of a deer I saw relaxing in the afternoon sun in an area where a new subdivision is gradually being developed. (It is called 'Deerhaven Subdivision' which I must say seems like an oxymoron to me.) These photos were taken last year when the roads were first being cut in and lots of forest still remained. The deer didn't seem to mind me taking its photo. It didn't move at all. I think I may have interrupted its nap actually and it was just waiting patiently for me to leave so it could go back to sleep.
