Mountain Deer

Deer are often easily photographed and each one seems to have its own story behind those gentle eyes.  The last deer in this series especially grabbed my attention.  How did it get that injury?  Would it make it through the winter?  It was the most eager to eat from the feeders and didn't move when approached.  It seemed to be pleading for help and I was happy that the deer came in and grazed the loose feed on the ground.  I hope it makes it this winter and heals up without infection.  It seemed to be doing okay other than the obvious but I certainly wanted to know more.  If only the animals could talk, I would listen for days.
