I was able to slowly, carefully approach this Mule Deer and photograph its head very close-up. I like the details of a close-up image like this showing its eye lashes. I have had one of my friends call it ” in your face…photography!” I have always loved the eye to eye contact that is seen with the close-up images. Sometimes this is not always a great idea. The eye to eye contact in the animal kingdom can be perceived as aggression and depending on if its predator or prey will trigger different animal behaviors.
