This guy was having breakfast on our land near a natural pond and in a wetlands. I had to take the photo through the aspen and cottonwoods. Here is is looking up just as the sun filtered through. What a cute little (actually big) guy. He has velvet on his antlers. If you look closely, you can see flies zooming around his antlers and face.
Photo taken in mid-July west of Victor, Montana, USA.
