What a magnificent beast!
The attentive pose is terrific.I see the many similarities to the white tailed deer but I see so many differences too.
The focus is sharp with wonderful detail.
You have managed to capture this in a lovely setting with a tapestry of colours and textures to the foliage.
And back to this deer,standing unobstructed with such a strong look.

Wonderful shot of this elegant Mule Deer among that amazing natural habitat. Great colours and the image is neat and sharp. Beautiful lighting and I like your chosen POV to portray it. Very nicely composed too.

I guess this male has the perfect antler.
The ears are very large indeed. I saw in Kruger that most antelope species can move their ears independently as well.
A mule is a hybrid between a horse and a donkey and Burro is the Spanish word for donkey.
However the antler is more impressive compared to the ears, I guess. The former isn't always available though.
It's a magnificent beast indeed.
Thanks for sharing it in this autumn setting...

Great orange/yellow palette here combined with excellent 'Monarch of the Glen' type pose. Well seen and captured.
Got back yesterday at 4.30am.

Never seen Mule Deer myself, it looks very different to Red Scottish Deer I must say, thanks for sharing this beautiful creature! I like the delicate pastel tones very much, combination of yellows, browns and greens with plenty of details, beautiful!
TFS & regards,

This picture looks like a fairy tale, it's unreal because it is such a beautiful magical animal. The colours of fall add brightness. Wow Evelynn, this is a beautiful picture, sharp and colourful - the colours in your pictures are always superb, and the deer is stunning with beauty, frozen in time yet seemingly so alive. Thank you!

Beautiful capture of that great Deer! Well done Evelynn, it can't be sharper, the exposure is fine and the overall quality is very high! Well done!

A superb capture of a Mule Deer stag. Technically this is great and I like the composition with a bit of autumnal vegetation on the right that suits this pose and POV.
TFS this beauty,

Beautiful shot of this fine looking Mule Deer Buck Evelynn,
Great pose with that high standing rack of his, makes him look like he's the king of his territory.
Love the soft lighting and the very natural looking colors. You can see how easily he would be able to blend into his surroundings for concealment. Well done!!
We only have Whitetails here in Ohio so it's always a special treat to view a really outstanding Mule Deer photo.

I love the image and I love these Mule Deer...they are now very hard to find among the white tailed here in WA at least in my part. I did see one yesterday on a ride with Jane...but there were people behind me in a hurry and no place to pull off....crazy and speedy world I live in...but thanks to God I have folks like you to help all along...

Beautiful Fall colors with a wonderful little 6 point buck for a bonus. The deer is very sharp and great details. Exposure is wonderful and the warm lighting is perfect for this shot.

This is avery good photo with the deer. You have coght the animal im a fine pose and made good use of it. The sharpness of the image is very fine showing even small details of the deer and plants arround. The light has been very well used so that colors are vivid and natural looking.
Thank you for sharing,

What a handsome critter. Lovely bg, too -- a shot in itself (or this is a lanscape with a subject in it!). Very nicely captured, especially in the wild. My personal taste would have been to crop it a bit on the right to place him better in the frame (though I'm not sure you had enough room in front of him to mae much of a difference). Still, what an amazing critter!

What a lovely specimen you have captured here.
Complimented by the spectacular fall colours of the environment.
He gave you a lovely pose and the eye contact is just great.
Fortunately this deer doesn't make me yawn (chuckle) as I still want to do some more
critiques before I go to hospital (tomorrow) to have an "incisional hernia" repaired.
Very well done and TFS.
