I have to say that I find this to be a very cool image.
This doe and fawn were grazing on the Great Plains and looked right at me when they realized I was there. The early morning sun lit up the immediate landscape in shades of autumn gold. In the background, the snow-covered Rocky Mountains including the imposing 14,259-foot-high Longs Peak. That mountain is about 50 miles from where I was at!
White-tailed Deer are North America’s smallest deer. They are very fleet-footed capable of speeds up to 30mph and able to leap as high as 10 feet and as far as 30 feet in a single bound.
