Deer

DSC_2777

Deer are such wonderful animals!  I saw these deer while on my trip to South Dakota (Custer State Park), and Wyoming at Yellowstone National Park, this past June.  Basically I’d spot the deer but they would spot or hear the vehicle and flee.  Usually when trying to photograph deer, one has to be very quiet and still or be far away.

Many of these deer were very young adults.  The males shed their antlers yearly and grow a new pair.  These deer are Mule Deer.   I saw deer in the Custer State Park of South Dakota and again in Yellowstone National Park.  The trio of young bucks were spotted while I was on a guided bus tour to the Lamar Valley of Yellowstone National Park.  I recommend this late afternoon and early evening tour, called the Wildlife Tour to Lamar Valley.  It is a large group bus tour but you do see many animals and there are opportunities to get out of the bus for rest stops and picture-taking.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!
