Here is a shot of one of my favorite subjects. This was taken quite recently with the Canon 40D and 500mmF4 lens. This deer totally accepts me and was not alarmed at my presence.
She and her cohorts, live over a mile from the nearest highway and are not likely to cause a collision such as happened to Kerri's son over the weekend. Although deer are my favorite animal they do cause problems at times. I am glad that her son escaped the encounter without injury!

Deer in this area's main concerns are avoiding predators, poachers, trespassers, and road hunters.
When I see them this close I often watch their expressions and wonder what they are thinking about.
