Dear Deer

On the way up the windy mountain road to Kitt Peak, I surprised this deer who was in the road when I first saw her. She ran up the side of the hill a ways and stopped, so I pulled over and took her picture using my Canon A570is.

Yes, we have them all over this area. I've seen them in the desert not far outside of town as well as in the mountains. We used to have Bighorn Sheep up in the Catalinas but their number was dwindling last time I heard and I don't know if they are still there. Lotsa critters out there, both "slimy" and fuzzy.
