Peek-a-Boo

SDP  5-6-11
This deer was so interested in me at Myakka State Park in Sarasota, it caught me a bit off guard. It watched me through a stand of trees for a couple of minutes, and when I turned my back for the briefest of moments, it meandered into the road, and craned its head to watch me. Once it was safely across the road and tucked into the brush again, it ducked down and played a little game of peek-a-boo with me. So sweet!

Cute. The closest we got to a deer was when a stag crossed the road in front of us while we were waiting at the lights - without a camera - in a small town in the Forest of Compi├Ęgne in France.

Great shot!

Probably couldn't wait to get back to the herd and tell them all what a strange creature he had seen on his walk through the forest.

I had 8 in my back yard last week. My garden is NOT too excited!

Cute. I thought deer were more skittish and would dance away.
