While waiting for Firefall in Yosemite last night, a fellow photographer and myself spotted about five bucks across the river and began shooting them. They eventually crossed the river to a small open area and began to eat and we were lucky enough to get about 10ft near them. Possibly could have gotten closer, but I give personal space, especially with animals.

Here are a couple shots.

Awesome experience! #4 stands out to me as my favorite of the bunch; I really like how the sunlight has illuminated the flies hovering above the deer.
