Black-Tailed Deer (aka Mule Deer) in Yosemite Valley are VERY friendly. We spotted a little family strolling around Bridalveil Falls. Isn’t this fawn cute?
In case you were wondering, we were NOT feeding the deer (which is illegal). This one was just extremely social and liked going around to lick people’s hands.
Soon after we left the park, we found this buck taking it easy on the side of the road. At least he was until we got out and started taking a bazillion photos of him.
Those are AMAZING photos!! I can’t believe how friendly that one was! I love deer- we have them in the mountains but I don’t get up there much.
I love your deer pictures! They are so cute. 🙂
Those photos are AMAZING!!! I see deer when I walk in the mornings, but they are NOT social and run as soon as they hear you coming.
Wow, it’s so friendly!
Whao..that is really a very close up photo of a deer. Really captivating shots!!
Whao.. that’s a really friendly deer. I haven’t been up an close with one before.
That’s a really friendly deer. It would certainly freak me up if a deer really came up so close.
Wow, they are gorgeous! I love the photo of the buck! It’s cool that they are so friendly!
GORGEOUS photos and how cool that they would actually come to you AND LICK your hand!!!!!!!!!!!
I can’t believe it ate from your hand!!
That’s amazing that they let you get that close to them.
We got our first buck picture a couple of summers ago, but our buck was no where near as chill as yours was w/people in the vicinity. 🙂 Great group of pictures!
Oh how cute!
Now that is a friendly deer
Wow! Look how close you got! That deer is beautiful!
Oh my gosh I would have to too scared to do this.
Oh my. What gorgeous, gorgeous photographs!!
Those are some lovely shots.
Great shots for sure!!
The deer reappear and move in to our backyard around this time of year.

wow – I grew up with lots of deer around but I’ve never seen them actually approach people!
Wow, how friendly!
Wow, you got some great photos!
The deer that come across our yard are so skittery they jump and run if they hear you inside the house moving. It’s amazing you got his close! And a buck!! I’ve only seen one ever in real life. That’s really neat.
Really…did I really reply to something I replied to on Dec. 19th, and the whole time I was typing I was thinking, “I’ve seen these…’ and then I scrolled up, after I typed my response. lol
Just never mind me, i’m up at 2 it he morning instead of 3 (couldn’t sleep) and my mind must not be functioning right. 😀
Haha – you’re too cute 🙂 Hey, it’s taken me over a month just to get back to my comments! Thanks for all your support!
Yeah, these were pretty tame and the setting/lighting made it even more picturesque.
