Back in June 2017, I was at the Grand Teton National Park photographing near Phelps Lake which is near Laurance S. Rockefeller Preserve. I had a young boy get my attention. He wanted to let me know that a Mule Deer Buck was approaching me. I slowly turned and got a few close photos of this Mule Deer Buck before it moved on toward the lake. I also noticed that another Mule Deer was with this Buck. I think it was a female.
Both Mule Deer fed toward the lake and then turned and went back up a hill into the thick timber. You can see in my photo that this deer is growing new antlers for the season.

I was hand-holding a Canon EOS 7D Mark II camera with a Canon EF 100-400 mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II lens attached.
