A few days ago I wrote that it is National Wildlife Refuge Week and posted some of the birds I have photographed at Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge. I photograph other wildlife at the refuge and the largest mammals found there are the Mule Deer that can be seen in the marshes. Last fall I photographed this beautiful Mule Deer buck at Bear River MBR in rut as he followed a doe around the frost-covered marsh. He had a nice rack of antlers with several atypical tines.
The buck basically ignored me and kept his focus on the doe that was ahead of him and outside all of these frames.
As both of the deer headed east and moved further away from where I was more of the habitat that they were in showed in the images that I took.
Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge is a big draw for birders and bird photographers but it is also home to mule deer, beavers, foxes, coyotes, voles, marmots, skunks, weasels, muskrats and other animals.
Everyday is an adventure at Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge and you never know what you might see.
Life is good.
