    If you've got an itch, you just gotta scratch, I say! LOL! Don, just superb! Why mule? Is it because of their ears?

    Isn't it funny that if one scratches itself the other one follows suit....I wonder why that is. I guess you'd have to ask the mule deer that question:) It is a great shot nevertheless.

    Beautiful capture of these mule deer, Don!! The flies and gnats really cause them a lot of grief. I've been known to scratch my back on a nice tree in the woods myself. Love this photo!!!!

    Aren't those ears just incredible? Their hearing is astonishing. And, these bad boys can approach 260 pounds.

    "Scratch your back, and I'll scratch mine." Ummm.... Did think that's how the saying went ;) You were itching to get this shot, weren't you, Don? Way to be ready and shoot!
