In my hunting lifetime, I have actually walked up on two does while walking through the woods bedded down and it frightened me as much as it did them.
I had no camera at the time to take a deer flying through the air but Mike was ready. Great hind shot of a "whitetail" deer!
The Golden Rod was over 4 feet tall, he said. Amazing photographs in the great wild outdoors of Michigan! Thanks for sharing your pictures with us, Mike.
