Out of the trees

Sunshine drew me to the west side of the city. I was greeted near the entrance to Washington Park by this pair of deer, which moved cautiously from the treeline to the perimeter road leading to the Loop Road. I stopped along the way to descend the stairs to a wave-washed beach. A refreshing mid-afternoon […]

Morning snack

Some of the six deer I spotted this morning were in the shadows, some in the sunlight as they moved into the trees after munching on treats provided by a Cap Sante resident. Outside the frame of this photo is a buck.

Life at Washington Park

I was too early to drive the Loop Road, so I cut through the campground at Washington Park to park and wait. On the way I saw a deer, so I parked and followed it into a clearing. There I discovered six of the resident deer population … two or three resting in the shade […]

Morning stroll

Washington Park and environs are a great place to photograph wildlife such as this pair of deer. I love such encounters, but a few minutes after taking this photo I spotted four deer in the front yard of a nearby home, and I doubt the homeowner shares my excitement about these lovely creatures.

Downtown deer

The garden at a downtown Anacortes drew this pair of deer Wednesday. They spent several hours snacking, and obviously they were not intimidated by the guy with the camera. I recall many stories of islanders whose love for wildlife fades quickly after an incidence of garden devastation. Ah, the trials of the ongoing clash of […]

Small herd

OK, so maybe “herd” is a bit of an exaggeration, but there was a fourth deer outside this frame. I caught this group nibbling grass near 5th Street.

Summer morn

This deer in a field at the base of Cap Sante is obviously accustomed to “neighbors.” The two of us were enjoying a welcome splash of summer sun on Tuesday morning.

Who’s there

I captured this image recently on a drive past Port of Anacortes property near the airport, just off Anacopper Road. My subject wasn’t too concerned, but let’s put it this way: I wasn’t able to close the gap between us, either. I was even less successful a few minutes earlier when a river otter evaded […]

Spring walk

I was on my way from photographing members of the Shell Puget Sound Plant First Responders team when I noticed this beautiful March’s Point resident on the refinery grounds. It’s not uncommon to see deer in pairs, but there may well have been one in hiding. The deer was understandably skittish, even though we were […]

Deer in the hood

We shared some quality time Saturday evening with this fuzzy-horned buck, apparently drawn to our garden by the watermelon and apples in the compost pile. After a few minutes of putting up with my camera he sauntered up the street, much to the delight of the neighbors who had called us about him in the […]
