Almost every morning, I walk through a portion of the Greenbelt area in Staten Island to get to the Greenbelt Recreation Center where I go to work out in their gym. About every two weeks or so I get a glimpse of a white-tailed deer, but I’ve never been able to get a photo of one–until today. It’s taken me a whole year to get this photo.
It’s hard to get a photo, because they run away as soon as they sense a person. I was using the zoom on my camera and really much further away than this photo would suggest. Deer don’t have good eyesight, so if one is very quiet, it may take a minute before they know someone is there.
