Purloined raspberries: A deer up close and personal

Going to the store I decided not to bother taking my good camera. Hence as I drove by the resident gardens here at Willamette View all I had was my iPhone when I saw this deer munching on raspberries. It was unafraid as I walked closer and closer, getting within 20 feet before it walked a few steps away from me. I assumed this was the critical distance, so I followed it taking pictures as it went from one succulent item on this bountiful garden buffet. When I finally left, it was still in the gardens.

This morning (Weds., June 24) the deer came to me at about 10:30 AM, for a better photo op with my good camera. It was just across the street munching on shrubs. It seems emaciated to me, as I could see its ribs, though his belly seems full.

View from the 16 story OHSU building on Bond St. - Downtown Portland and the tram

This blog is devoted to my photos... 
before moving here I was using a Nikon D-90 with a 18-200mm lens,
here I have been using my new D-7100 with the Nikor 18-300 lens.

Below: I took a friend downtown to the 16 story OHSU medical building for an appointment. It is connected by the landmark tram to the clifftop medical school itself. I used the opportunity to take pictures of Portland and some of its dozen bridges, including a brand new public transport, bicycle and pedestrian Tikkum Crossing Bridge (open this fall), which is similar in design to the Zakim Bridge in Boston.
