Costa Rican Wildlife

This deer followed us through the jungle for a while, unafraid at all of the humans walking around taking pictures. My sense was that it had grown up in this protected forest preserve and so humans had never been a threat to it.

For more animal shots from my trip go here.

Awww, sweet. I always feel sorry for deer, being so timid and hunted. This is a lucky one to have protection.

Wow! I've never seen one this close before. Normally, they are off even before they see me. Looks quite at ease here.

That is quite unique ! Great head shot !
That would be an awesome experience. It is unusual to have such close contact with deer.

Very sweet! Nice picture and composition.
This is a great closeup; love the detail visible here. It is interesting that the deer in this tropical setting have very little hair; makes sense!
Not often you see them like this, it has quite sad eyessmile

Sympa ce cerf pas farouche il a l'air jeune et je vois qu'il a fait la star pour toi
You are either very close or have one heck of a zoom lens. Excellent detail and still soft in appearance. I like that about your photos, they have a bit of polish to them.
