Total Eclipse of the Hart

On my first visit to Stone Mountain this year, I encountered an entire herd of deer, at least seven or eight individuals, with more probably lurking in the woods.

They were somewhat off the path, along the five-mile walking trail that circles the mountain. I encountered them about halfway between the two and two and a half mile markers. The terrain made it next to impossible to get any closer.

I almost missed seeing them. A passing dog startled the younger one in the first video and the sound of its hooves caused me to look.

As can be seen, they blend very well into the surrounding flora.
