Colvin Run Habitat: Popperatzi: Slalking Deer

I normally do not shoo the animals (well except for the crows) from the Habitat. But with the deer so numerous and frequent, I began a game of stalking the deer this summer. The position of the shrubs in the Habitat allowed me to get very close before the deer saw me. Of course with me close, as soon as they saw me, the deer would take off. Most times, I only got shots of their rears.
Of course, my stalking never deterred them coming back. In fact, as can be seen from this second photo the buck never lost even a green leaf - even in full stride.
The deer typically ran 30 yards and start eating again.
