Velveted Coues Deer

Avra Valley Velveted Deer 1995


– view larger –

Coues deer (pronounced cows) is a subspecies of Whitetail deer whose range is South Eastern Arizona. This capture of a young Coues with velvet on his antlers was made near Tucson. I like it because of the completely out of focus boulder at the bottom of the frame, a seemingly surreal delineation point between the animal kingdom and the screwed up world of humans. The vibe of the deer is calm. He’s perfectly content…as long as I stay on my side…and don’t screw up his world.
