This young buck was hanging out at Myakka State Park just before it started raining. As we watched each other for several minutes, I kept looking for other deer. (Being a Michigan native, I know firsthand that deer rarely travel alone.) Sure enough, when he started to trot away, a doe suddenly came into view. The same ranger who I talked to about the silly great blue heron told me that 8-point and 6-point bucks were recently spotted in the same area. I ended up seeing 11 deer that rainy afternoon -- the most I've ever seen here in Florida.
