Our Friends, the Urban Deer
Every late-afternoon we have a visit from three or four deer. And it is not as if we live in the "boonies." We are in a heavily populated suburban city in Saint Louis County, but these critters have made it their home. I have no idea how these guys survive. I've even seen a ten point buck in our backyard! The best was when a momma deer had a little fawn in tow one day last Spring. Here is one of them that I caught from my deck with my 400 mm lens, in the nice light of a late afternoon. And then he took a good long look at me, and just strolled off.
