Not a Deer Lawn Ornament

This is a real deer at Peaks of Otter Lodge. She is not far from some folks who were sitting in lawn chairs, but she didn't get any closer.

I watched her look up at a balcony until someone tossed something down at her... it reminded me of folks at a Zydeco show begging for Mardi Gras beads.

The deer only let you walk up to about 25 or 30 feet of them; then they saunter off. I used a zoom for the photo below.
