Whitetail Deer: Last Year – This Year

Several of the deer at Lake Kegonsa State Park have gotten used to me taking pictures of them.  Last year this doe approached to within ten feet of me and had I been more patient she would have gotten closer.

This year, while she still remains unafraid, she has remained aloof.  I can tell she’s unafraid because her tail remains down while I take pictures of her.  But she keeps her distance and even seems suspicious of my intentions.

And I know why.  Take a close look at the picture below.

She has been nursing, which means her fawn or fawns lay hidden somewhere near.  She stayed near, allowing me to take photos of her, but when a man walking a dog appeared she alerted and bolted.
