Mule Deer Rut

Yesterday’s post featured a young Mule Deer buck. Today’s post features a large Mule Deer buck, along with his doe, captured as they grazed along the canyon ridge of Waterton Canyon, Colorado. Sensing something was watching me, I looked up to see this nice buck, who was watching me:

After capturing a few images of this nice buck, I noticed a doe a short ways ahead of him. As he caught up to her, I made this image of the pair:
