Deer, Practising the Art of Deception

Another day, another deer.

You notice the White-tailed Deer in the field because it's moving slowly away from you, only stopping to measure the distance back with a mocking toss of its antlers. It doesn't raise its white-flag tail in alarm. You will never reach it.

But you don't notice the White-tail that's even closer, the one hiding motionless beside the garden shed. It sees you, though, and waits until you've almost focused...

Two flashes of white. Both deer cross the forest to the trees.
