Yellowstone National park, Wyoming, USA.
When driving to Tower Falls the other day, we spotted a large herd of deers that were going to cross highway to get to the other side. They were not in a rush and bear themselves with proud. Many cars, beside us, saw this herd also and started to pull over to get ready for these animals to come close. But, the leader, probably the oldest and most experienced deer, suddenly stopped, had a few minutes of observation and then turned back, and the whole crowd too.
But there is an interesting point in this picture - look at the last animal, it seems that he (or she?) is not interested in what is going in front, he is more interested in me, my camera and the car I am driving... Probably, he was thinking - hmmm, never saw that before, maybe I will check it out, but is it safe to do so?

Тссссссссссс, не спугни!!! Отлично! Уверяю тебя, в России нет таких мест, чтоб эти пугливые создания подпустили тебя на такую дистанцию. Хороший репортаж получился. Из Йеллоустоунского парка.

The series on the magnificent park is astonishing.
A fabulous moment taken here, animals look at people, maybe just as we do on them...
Beautiful nature, well collected colors, depth and sure it's inhabitants.
