This is a free ranging Mule Deer that migrates 30 plus miles from Summer to Winter ranges. So fortunate to cross paths with him and spend a good hour as he fed unconcerned.

You have to click on this one to fully appreciate just how lovely that light is, and how well it shines a spotlight on this handsome buck, Terry! I like your angle which gives a lovely depth through the trees behind, and the feeding pose as he browses the lush vegetation. A fine capture of this beauty!
