Taken last week while in Rocky Mountain National Park. I actually stopped at this spot to look for moose and instead found this smaller member of the deer family.
Returning to my truck after a bit of a hike, he actually was initially between me and my truck. I waited. And waited. And waited. But, he was happy staying in place eating grass.
I ended up going off-trail, giving him a wide berth, and working toward my truck. Well, he seemed to find me to be very interesting as he started walking toward me.
You can tell (head and ears up), he wasn’t aggressive, just curious. I, however, did not care to get up close and personal with him and went ahead and got in my truck. He lost interest after that.
