Alert Does.


A few images from a recent session in the park with a pair of Red Does. These animals can sense the slightest scent or movement and their ears perk up just like radio antenna even when you are over a hundred yards away. It is always best to approach very, very slowly from downwind so that they don't perceive you as a threat.

Whoops! No comment required.

The Does decided when the encounter should conclude and slowly ambled away leaving the 'wildlife watcher' to turn his attention to another Deer species and something for a future post.   

Have a great wildlife watching weekend wherever you are. FAB.

  22. We did have a good wildlife weekend here in Alaska. But I really enjoyed your red deer too. I love knowing that about their ears! I wonder if ours (the ones we see in Oregon, I think they are called whitetails) are that sensitive. I know sometimes I can get closer than other times ... maybe it depends on the wind.
