White-tailed Deer Eating Apples

I had been driving along an old, back country road when I saw a White-tailed Deer a bit further ahead. It was foraging for apples and would look up at my car in the distance and then continue eating. I approached very slowly, stopping often to take a picture, and in this manner was able to stop abreast of it. It was curious but not frightened of my presence. At one point a car sped by from the opposite direction and the deer ran away a short distance in the open field behind it but when the car dis- appeared, the deer returned and continued feeding. When I left the deer was still there, enjoying the windfall of apples it had found.
