|Deer - Sierra Nevada 2014|
OK, so this wasn't taken in 2004, but in 2014, during my most recent backpack. For some reason I didn't get any wildlife photos in 2004. For this photo I used an Olympu E-PL5 with a 12-50mm lens.
As I wrote at the time: "As Mike was eating his freeze-dried chili mac dinner this deer wandered by. Ambled off after a few minutes of curious staring.
The chili mac substance wasn't really all that inviting, although Mike normally doesn't have that much appetite when backpacking in altitude anyway."
