I noticed this stump had a hole in the top of it and as I was going by a ground squirrel poked his head up, and then disappeared down into the stump again. I think that is what attracted this deer to the stump.
This just struck me asa beautiful setting with the sunlight filtering through the woods and two deer just brousing along in the peaceful setting. I also had some photos of elk but only the rump so they must have been moving right along. This is a very good animal trail and I never know what will appear on the camera.
