White-tailed Deer: Running Female

I didn’t stay near the fawn for very long.  I took a few quick photos and left it by the side of the trail.  I did not want to be the reason why the mother would abandon it.  I went back to the same spot about forty-five minutes later.  The fawn had moved somewhere else, disappearing into more appropriate cover.  Near where it had been stood a big doe.

We surprised each other.  She had been foraging near some bushes along the left edge of the trail, while watching across the field.  I walked up on her left side.  She saw me and before I could even get a shot she bolted across the field.  I watched her run until she got into the middle of the field, where she stopped.  They always check their back-trail.  She decided she didn’t like my being there, which she displays by pointing her tail backwards and then continued running across the field.

Nothing runs like a deer.
