Throughout this trip, as well as on previous ones, we saw numerous ‘deer crossing’ signs along the highway (some of the signs even had flashing yellow lights), but we had never seen a single deer in any of those areas.
Today, we finally saw three deer running toward the highway, not too far ahead of us. The car in front of us slowed down, interfering with the first deer’s forward momentum, but the deer quickly altered its course and ran behind that car. Luckily, we saw them soon enough for Chris to slow down enough to allow all three of them to safely get across.
And although I had the camera in hand, I was more focused on watching them than photographing them, but I was able to capture two of the three in this photo!
