Stunned, Hurricane Ridge, Olympic National Park, Washington, 2009

Black tailed deer roam at will around the Hurricane Ridge overlook, feeding on the lush grasses that line its parking lots. I photographed this man on a cell phone, standing only a few feet away from a mother and its fawn. Wild deer are usually quite shy, and keep a good distance from people. But at Hurricane Ridge, they seem feel no threat. For man, however, such behavior comes as a surprise. This fellow seems rather stunned. I can almost hear him describing the animal activity playing out before him a rare scene in a world where wild animals and man are often at odds.
