Nice closeup, MsPuck. Are these deer accustomed to being fed by visitors?

No, they aren't fed by visitors. (We do throw nuts out if the winter is especially cold, but not when they are nearby, but on their well-traveled paths). But they are very accustomed to people. It's a fairly small park with an overabundance of deer, so they are very visible and quite unafriad in certain parts of the park. In other parts, where there are fewer visitors, they are shy.

This guy was eating acorns from an oak tree and was determined not to lose his spot there. So he patiently waited for me to take his pix and then resumed eating. He was about 50 feet from me and I stayed in the car so he never really picked up my scent.

It's just a great place to photograph deer. I have some great shots of a fox as well, which I'll try to dig out of my archives!
