Just to show you there is more wildlife in Valley Forge Park than deer! Not a great shot, but light was a bit low and he was trotting - paused only for a second.

I can imagine this would be hard unless you had the perfect gear for the job. They would be pretty flighty too i would imagine.

Actually I think they are amazingly tame in the park. I once saw a jogger on the path looking over her shoulder, and then saw that she was keeping her eye on a fox that was also trotting down the path - it looked for all the world like he was jogging too!! I stayed nearby in my car in case, but soon he darted off into the woods.

The animals in the park get so used to humans, that they barely qualify as wildlife any more. Makes it very nice for an amateur photographer!

You are right though. I really do believe that it is important to shoot tame animals so that you get used to framing and lighting challenges. Then when you are out in the fieldyoutend toperform better. I am not a big fan of Zoos but they do have their advantages.
