Watchful Daddy

In animals, photoblog by Steve0 Comments

What a surprise we had today. As we were coming out of our garage, we saw a doe and her calf right across the street eating some of the vegetation along the rocky cliff. As we rushed back in to get my camera, we realized they were also with the buck and another calf. Seeing a deer in the Hollywood Hills is not that uncommon, but seeing the entire family out in the open so close to the parked cars was quite a sight to behold. They were very curious about me as I was getting closer and closer to them, but soon realized I wasn’t going to bother them. Some moron honked her horn as she was parking and scared off the doe and first calf. The other two stuck around foraging some more and posing for me.

Tomorrow the I’ll post the calf, she was quite nervious as her daddy was sitting looking regal above making sure I wasn’t going to harm her. I wouldn’t want to be stuck by those horns, thank goodness for telephoto lenses.
