Info from Licensor: "I live in Woodland Park, Colorado in an active forest where deer come through our yard every day. The deer, while not tame, are well integrated into the community. They are not easily spooked and are comfortable in their surroundings. My dog, Winston, retrieves the newspaper for me every morning. He is a 7-year-old Golden Pyrenees in good health, but he does move rather slowly. When I let Winston out to get the paper, it wasn't unusual to see deer in the yard. Winston has been trained to leave the deer alone, so I wasn't concerned. I figured the deer would just move away once the dog got into the driveway. Instead the deer seemed curious, but unafraid of the dog and watched him every step of the way. It was a unique moment, one I am glad I was able to capture with my cell phone and share with others."
