You Don't See Us!

At the end of Bee Ridge Road, you'll find Rothenbach Park, which used to be a landfill. I checked it for the first time last week and encountered lots of signs notifying visitors that deer are common here. It was dusk and I was vigilant looking for deer as I walked and walked. Naturally, at the very end of my journey, when the sunlight was less than optimal, I noticed these three cute faces staring at me as if they were thinking, 'You don't see us!' I had to really bump up the ISO for this shot --- but, I got 'em. So, the signs are accurate -- there are deer in Rothenbach Park!

Great catch SRQ! I love how they think that if they're still, you won't see them. Bunnies do the same thing. It's so cute.

I used to see a lot of deer when running in Rothenbach.

We would go fairly early in the morning, right around sunrise and even with all the noise we were making, we would come across large groups of them. The most I counted was 17 in 1 gathering.

You did very well! It's a great shot. I wonder if Lois and I didn't bike down to that park once in years past. I just can't remember but the name is familiar.

Cool shot! I always love seeing deer, which isn't very often.

Sweet little ladies.

Nice, SRQ. This is a reminder that there must be deep in southwest Florida. I read about bear and panthers and of course alligators, but I don't hear people talking about deer.
