Today is Opening Day of deer season in Michigan, and for over 600,000 people, it’s a pretty important holiday. Over on Absolute Michigan we have a roundup of of the 2011 deer hunting season that has all kinds of information about this annual ritual.

If that feature is a shout-out to the hunters, this one is for the deer, because my hunch is that it’s pretty hard to hunt on the sun. arrdubyazee writes:

This is not a composite–I have the original Kodachrome to prove it.

This doe saw something odd in the grass, and came over to investigate. When she discovered just how odd that something was, she turned and bolted.

I count myself very lucky to have captured her in this pose, and I don’t ever expect to be as lucky again. Note that the antlers of a large buck are poking above the grass in the lower right of the image.

See it on black and in his wildlife slideshow.
