Default A couple from last night

I went to a park just before sunset last night
Took a picture of a Goose. I walked along a trail and around a corner
and this Deer was standing there.
It was getting dark so I had to Crank up the ISO to 800.
I left and it was almost dark. Thats when all the critters came out.

Nice - thanks for posting, Fred. We have a million deer living in the metro area here but they're only out at night so I rarely see them. Just see evidence that they've been around...

Cool! Deer surprise me. Most times they spook really easily and they're off. But, every now and then, you get one like this. Good ones.

Nice pictures. Like Gary said you had luck with the Deer. They are normally very shy.

Funny how it goes, isn't it. Our wood ducks are shy yet Steven's don't seem bothered by people. In some parts deer are the shy ones yet there's 'always' at least a couple in our yard. They even have names! According to my wife that is.
One of the reasons we moved out of the urban area.

At all Parks in Calgary where there is a pond there are Honkers.
Sometimes LOTS of Honkers
I think they see so many people they are not timid. Up here any way

Same thing with the Deer . In the Parks you can walk under 50 ' from them. But out in the Country , they are shy.
