There is a place not far from where I live that I expect to see deer. But I never do. It's right by a very busy road. However late last month I looked over just before that place and what did I see?
I had to pull over and take a few photos. This guy is obviously a male. You can see his little antlers.
Perhaps a young lady hanging out with him? You can see a few of the many cars that drive this road.
I was using the zoom on my camera because I didn't want to frighten them. I'd hate to see them try to get across that road.
Thankfully they weren't too scared but continued grazing. These are Columbian black tailed deer. They actually help us by eating things like poison oak.
The grounds they are on belong to St. Mary's but there weren't many people around since it was a Saturday.
Off they go. There were four but two were off to the side. I was rather happy to see these deer because they don't show themselves often around here.
