During the Summer of 1997, I had the opportunity to work and live on Shaw, one of the San Juan Islands, off the tip of Washington State. I lived quite simply in a trailer and biked to the lodge from the little "trailer park community" that housed about 12 spots.
On a day off, I noticed this deer had come into our compound. The locals told me this was pretty common, and since he loved to mooch food, they called him "Cracker". Being a nature lover, I decided to test just how trusting he was.
Sure enough, I was able to have a friend capture this wonderful shot (grainy as it was back then) of Cracker taking bread right out of my mouth!
I hope you all enjoy this shot as much as I enjoyed being a part of it.

3 mid size deer across from my house the first spring/summer I was here. They were frightened off by an approaching car and jumped the fence into the pasture beyond.

There is something precious about seeing wild life. (Of course when I am safe indoors. LOL) (10/24/2009)
I would recommend always having your camera with you wouldn't want to miss a shot like this deer who we suspect was enjoying a spring swim in the creek or maybe he was bathing!

Deers will go to the deeper water if hurt also. We saw a deer once that had been shot and he was trying to cool the wound and they will rock back and forth trying to do so. (05/13/2009)
