Swamp White-tail

This white-tailed deer came to see what was making the rustling noise in the leaves.  I could just make it out as it left the safety to dogwood, walked through the tall grasses, and finally poked its head up to take a look at me.  It was probably only a trip of 100 feet, but it made me feel like I was an import curiosity for this buck.  For a change I had a telephoto lens on the camera because I had been chasing a white-breasted nuthatch.  I was unable to get a nice photo of him, but got this nice portrait of the deer.
