White-tailed Deer – Michigan

Off in the distance–a group of deer, on the northern passage of Jimme’, hidden deep within Kensington forest, I heard a soft rumbling noise. I was standing behind the trunk of an old dead cottonwood tree. My attention was regularly focused in that direction because it is common for animals of all kind to enter in and leave this section of protected wetland. Animals follow the terrain even if it means walking in water, birds follow the terrain even when floating on the water’s surface or flying overhead.

Deer Trek – Migration – Early One Winter Morning – Bevy of Whitetail Michigan

As I patiently remained hidden behind the tree, the noisy splashing got louder and closer. Suddenly, a small bevy of white tailed deer came rumbling along the trail right down the center of the narrow, shallow entry-way giving the appearance they were running on water.

The herd of white-tailed deer resembled an excited family on an exploratory road trip. The larger matriarch was in the rear looking like a drill sergeant barking commands to the troop of does & fawns. The tightly formed troop of deer looked like they enjoyed following the commands of their group matriarch. I remained motionless as the small bevy of white-tailed deer thundered passed my concealed location never knowing they were being observed.
