A small white tailed deer - wandering the lower canyon trying to find something to eat.
We are still in a major drought, so decent animal food is hard to find.

Nature can look very cruel, even under the best circumstances.

Traveller - yes, the animals can suffer. Many don't survive, as their sources of food disappear. In many ways, the birds do the best, as they can more easily move about.

Aren't we all glad that we have Supermarkets!!!!!!!! Sometimes you really have to wonder how animals survive droughts etc...or, Homo Sapiens pre recorded history for that matter! Traveller

Paul - you are right - the newer 16-300. I added it correctly, but typed it wrong.

10-300 or 16-300? Paul

Dave - thanks. It is a tinderbox. The whole area is under red flag warnings. We have had no significant rain since April. The stream coming down the mountain has been dry for months. There are a couple of small spring fed pools along the main creek, but that is all.

Traveller - oops,. It was the Tamron 10-300 which is my "walk-about" lens.

Very good, Jim...I think this is better than very good...good framing, true colors, fine subject...but what lens did you use? Thanks, Traveller

Looks like a tinderbox. Rare for us to see single does. I've put a shot of a pair in Pending, where it will probably stay.
