Deer on the Hill

This lone mule deer, spotted on the hillside yesterday morning, stood quite still, listening intently. Perhaps she heard the neighbour's dogs or maybe she was just trying to locate her mates. We had seen two other deer here earlier.
After a short interval of time, she cautiously began to make her way toward the adjoining property.
Then changed direction and headed down the hill instead.
Her gait was unhurried as she carefully and quietly moved between the trees.
