Red deer, rocky mountains nat'l park, colorado
Camera: Canon compact Photo Location: Rocky Mtn campground

I took a camping site in Rocky Mtn Nat'l Park and this deer kept grazing close to me for an hour. People do not disturb them so they are not afraid and act naturally.

Nice Pic, but not a deer.

That's a bull elk, with antlers that are "in velvet". He should be in rut by mid September, so he needs to rub those antlers on trees to get rid of the velvet.
