Critters, Tame and Not

Last weekend I decided to take a walk at Side Cut Park.

These deer were in the meadow that lie between me and the trail I chose to walk.  I was sure they would wander into the woods as I came directly at them.  

They did not.

When I was about 10 yards away, I headed around them.

They were curious, but did not move.

I suppose they would have run had I been with Hudson.
I passed several more very near the trails. They paused in their eating to watch me pass, but none moved.

These two were a different story.  
They were calm until I was about 20 feet away, then hissed and walked toward me.  I didn't want to risk being bitten, so I retraced my steps and took another route.
I'm guessing Hudson would have chased them away as well.
