Male Blacktail Deer
Odocoileus hemionus sitkensis
A few seconds after noticing the first deer, I saw this second deer laying there as well. It was a little surprising how easy it was for me not to notice them. This deer was actually the one Melissa saw first. She said it was just starting to lay down when she saw it. Notice the start of antlers just in front of its ears.
Location: Hillcrest Drive, Sitka, Alaska
