Curious White-tailed Deer

White-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus, Cervidae) photographed 06/17/2012 at Oak Openings Metropark near Swanton Ohio.

White-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus, Cervidae) live throughout most of North America, and they’re definitely common here in southeast Michigan and in northwest Ohio. Every time my wife and I hike at Oak Openings Preserve Metropark west of Toledo, Ohio we see at least a few. Most of the time they flee before we can really get a look at them. The individual above, however, paused for a moment to check us out before running off. It gave me a chance to get a decent photo of her through the foliage.

    I like the depth of field that you achieved. Really serves as a soft frame around your doe. Great shot!
