Mule Deer Buck - Alberta, Canada


As human population continues to expand into areas occupied by wildlife, animals, such as this large mule deer buck, often are forced to come into towns to eat the shrubs and lawn grasses in order to survive the winter.
I was driving through a town in Alberta a few years ago, when I spotted this huge buck posing in front of this man-made rock wall.
I took this photo from the window of my pickup. I have learned over the years not to get very specific about the exact locations of wildlife that I photograph. I don't like to try to retake some of my photos, only to find fifteen other photographers and a tour bus full of Japanese tourists crowding the wildlife that I used to have by myself.
