Prancing Deer

I was out at Roxborough State Park this weekend as they open once a month just before sunrise.  I didn’t quite make it to the spot I was hoping to get to by sunrise, but did manage to capture some nice images, which I’ll share at a later time.  As I was leaving the park I came upon a large heard of mule deer. The females were grouped together followed by a smaller group of bucks in the open pasture just before the hogback into the park. I pulled over and was able to capture and watch them graze and move down the pasture.

Another car came over the road and spooked the females and I witness this amazing and beautiful prancing deer as they hurried across the prairie grass. I captured this doe in mid stride. It was such a beautiful movement and just wanted to share it with you today.

I hope you are having a good week!
