A white tail deer doe pauses under a dogwood tree in my front yard to check traffic before crossing the street in this suburban neighborhood. I had been photographing the deer from my window over the back yard as she made the familiar path from a wooded park into the yard and past the fruit trees toward the drive way. I ran downstairs and propped open the front door and crouched down so she wouldn't notice me. They are so familiar with people that even when she heard the shutter a few times and looked at me then turned to look down the street before moving on. The background was burned down but the light and the deer are all natural.
