Deer in Zion

Cautiously Friendly

The valley in Zion National Park is a great place to go if you are interested in photographing deer, especially in early morning or around dusk when they are active and often in abundance.  They have learned through the decades that here there is nothing to fear from the humans they encounter, and so you can often get quite close.

She looks like the ones that frequent our yard...full of ticks the poor things.

Nice photo of the deer. Must be losing its winter hair?

Karen, lovely! Aren't they so sweet and innocent!

I think I counted a heard of about 22 there once and I was standing right in the middle of them. It is fun to be able to get up close sometimes.
