Lots of deer are in the Estero Americano watershed in early November. The hunter and I had seen a number of deer running to escape coyotes. A couple of deer plunged into the water to swim to the other shore.
Looking through binoculars I spotted deer throughout the whole of Wednesday’s paddle. Most of the deer were outside handheld camera range.
But on the paddle back I got close enough to this pair of deer to pull out my camera and take some pictures.
These two stood stock still, as if they weren’t real deer at all, but as if they were made of fiberglass. Except for their heads and necks, which turned in perfect harmony to follow the passage of my boat.
