Coyote

Being such intelligent and adaptable creatures, I have an enormous amount of respect for coyotes. They are very quick to adjust their habits based on environmental changes, as well as human development. These canines eat a wide variety of food items, including mammals, reptiles, birds, fruit, and even vegetable matter. Not only are they prevalent throughout the desert, but coyotes thrive in the middle of large cities.

Regal Stag

Nearing the end of a 5-mile hike, this majestic buck bounded onto the trail, approximately 30 feet ahead. It took him a few moments to notice me. Once he did, he quickly sized me up, before bounding across the trail, disappearing into the brush in short order. I don't know that I've ever seen such a powerful, regal-looking deer...look at those muscles! Photo taken at Montour Preserve, PA, USA

Fawns

A larger pair of fawns that I encountered today. Photo taken near Northumberland, PA, USA. The one on the left seemed to be the leader, as it kept a close eye on me for a few seconds, then snorted and took off, closely followed by it's companion.

Doe Trio

Never before have I visited a place with such tame deer as those of Stephen C. Foster State Park, GA, USA. The wild deer of this Georgia park would consistently allow me to walk within 20 feet of them, without reacting to my presence.

As far as wildlife photography goes, mammals are probably one of the toughest animal classes to capture.  This group comprises some of the most intelligent, impressive, and unfortunately, evasive species on the planet.  All subjects are wild animals, which were not baited or harassed.
