I sat down on the side of the road and this one comes walking right towards me.

This one has something funny hanging off her knee. Is that some sort of growth?  I’ll have to keep an eye out for her.

I got to Chesnut park before 8am on a cloudy Saturday morning in early December. It looked like it was going to rain so there wasn’t a lot of people there. The deer were all along the road throughout the park. They were just wandering around enjoying the quiet. I noticed when I left 3 hours later, more people had come in to walk and jog and the deer had all retreated to the back of the park.

  1. These growths are tumors/fibros of sorts. I forget the technical names but usually they are completely harmless to the deer and very common. I grew up in the mountains and saw these often. Great photos!
