Oh, Deer!

This past week I had an opportunity to photograph several deer that are currently in residence along the east side of Bear Lake. In lieu of a regular blog post, I thought I would share several photos instead. Enjoy!

Several of the deer seemed delighted to pose for me. =)

This one was a little bit shy. ;)

Here were a couple of cute fawns who were too small to jump over the fence with their mother.

This is where the mother of the twin fawns headed, to hang out with her peeps on the other side of the fence. There were about 20 head of deer in this location.

Here's one that was playing peek-a-boo near the lake.

This little guy was so cute! =) And what a little ham. He posed quite well for me.

This one was patiently waiting for her turn. ;)

We also saw a few eagles that day. Here's one posing with his breakfast.

It was a rather misty day. This is a cool shot I captured of the sun, covered by fog.

Here is a nifty shot of the mist fading, allowing the sun to shine through.

Once the sun was visible, the lake returned to its normal hue of gorgeousness.

And the deer enjoyed the sun as well.

On our way back through Dingle, the mist moved back in. But we could still see a group of deer frolicking on top of a haystack.

This final shot was also taken near Dingle. You may note that there are a couple of bucks hanging out with these does. One poor dude has orange twine wrapped around one of his antlers. Most uncool. However, he wasn't about to let me help him get untangled.
