It looks as though my subject matter will have to change because the deer can hide in the low forest cover now.
The deer haven’t gone anywhere, but the low forest cover has gotten thick enough so that I can’t see them until I walk right up on them.
It also means the deer hear me before they see me and while this herd has gotten used to me, they still have a flight instinct. Even the young buck who posed so nicely for me a couple of weeks ago, now flees because he hears someone walking up on him.
He fled into this. When I took the picture I could see him moving around in there, but I cannot see him in the photo, so you’ll just have to take my word for it — he’s in this photo.
