Tots with that? Driving through the wilds of Hillcrest

OK, I know. Deer in Arkansas are pretty commonplace. But I snapped this fellow off my deck this morning. He's standing, as the crow flies, approximately 200 feet uphill from the drive-through loudspeaker at the Sonic on Cantrell Road.

I've been wondering about him. For years now, I've been seeing a herd of scrawny doe wandering through Knoop Park and forest around the water treatment plant. But bucks were in short supply. He had a companion who slipped behind the brush just before this shot.
