Horner Wildlife Refuge

A large population of deer thrive on the land surrounding the observatory. The picture was taken on a Saturday morning in mid-October,1996. It was the next to last day of archery hunting season. This animal walked up behind our roll roof building where I had been waiting for about half an hour. After the shutter snapped, before running away, she stamped her feet and snorted fiercely at me.

Just beyond this nice web outside the main building's front door, is the solar observation equipment and beyond that, one of the sanctuary's three ponds.
