Oh, Deer!

What big ears you have! This doe, we shall call her Bambi's Mom, was really calm for a deer in the wild. I usually consider deer nature's ADHD poster child since they never seem to sit still and tend to jump at any slight sound, but she was very docile and let us get pretty close. At one point she just laid down on the forest floor and lazily gnawed on some grass in her vicinity. Check out the flies buzzing just above her ears.
