DEER IN A WILDERNESS AREA
I've never considered myself to be a serious wildlife photographer, but when the wildlife knocks on your door, it is difficult to turn the opportunity down.
We just happen to live in a wilderness location surrounded by many acres of BLM land, and as we were viewing our surroundings yesterday several deer strolled through the Juniper forest and made it rather easy for me to capture this image. Again, the camera was ready and this became a rather easy capture.
The location is somewhere along the eastern slope of the UNCOMPAHGRE PLATEAU in SW Colorado. A later Post describes our most recent move into this wilderness area.
Make a Google search for the Uncompahgre Plateau and you will find this to be a most interesting and very large land formation which is located in SW Colorado. The highest point tops out at about ten thousand feet.
