Description

They were creeping into the trees in my backyard, as soon as they saw me, they ran away from fear.Although they seem to be scared, if they see you from a distance they don't instantly run, they actually stop and stare. They always seem to be traveling with their pact, I rarely ever see them alone. However, when they run from fear, I notice they don't usually run in the same direction, each deer takes its own path. They run very fast uphill, almost seems as if they appear to be weightless.

Description from Wikipedia

The mule deer (Odocoileus hemionus) is a deer indigenous to western North America; it is named for its ears, which are large like those of the mule. There are believed to be several subspecies, including the black-tailed deer. However, some genetic studies have indicated that mule deer may have developed relatively recently through the interbreeding of white-tailed and black-tailed deer, which may have evolved from white-tailed deer thousands of years ago. Unlike the related white-tailed deer...
