Mule Deer Doe in the Stansbury MountainsMule Deer Doe

I photographed this Mule Deer doe while camping in North Willow Canyon in the Stansbury Mountain Range of Tooele County, Utah. The doe and several others were grazing on the grasses of our campsite when we came back from photographing bird and this doe sort of danced her way towards us, that is about the closest I can come to describing how she was moving. She definitely kept her eyes on us while the rest of the deer nibbled the fresh spring grasses.

The Mulies are losing their heavy winter coats and will soon appear in their sleeker summer coats and giving birth to the fawns.
