Round these parts it's almost like the deer know when it's hunting season and when it's not. Over all, the deer are not too afraid of people. It's not unusual to see them roaming around town, in peoples yards, eating their flower & vegetable gardens ect. We have an abundance of white tails in this area.
Phil, these were on the bluff slope on river road very near the Yacht Club. I took the photos from the truck window! Stayed in the middle of the road for ten minutes making traffic go around while photographing.
Rita, the camera is a Canon Rebel XTI. We have a couple of different lenses but these were shot through a 75-300mm Canon lens. Same lens I use for the eagle photos.
