White-tailed Deer and fawns-Saluda, North Carolina-93E0700

The deer’s coat is a reddish-brown in the spring and summer and turns to a grey-brown throughout the fall and winter. The deer can be recognized by the characteristic white underside to its tail. It raises its tail when it is alarmed to warn the predator that it has been detected.

What I like when I spot a deer is the emotion and the “what the…look”, they depict before vanishing into the woods.  Stunning.

Three-toed Sloth, Puerto Limon, CR-MG_5706

The three-toed sloths are tree-living mammals from South and Central America.  Three-toed sloths are agile swimmers. They are still slow in trees and when spotted make easy characters to photograph.  They might stay in one position for an extended period.  One can say the same for Owls.
