Deer Stomp

On my morning run today I had a brief encounter with some deer. Three of them crossed the path in front of me. When they spotted me, they broke into two groups. A single deer ran up the hill a little way and stopped. The other two disappeared down the slope. The single deer and I had a face off from about twenty feet away. It lasted maybe two minutes. Him watching me, me watching him. Then he started to stomp as in the movie below. A warning to the other two deer that something was threatening him.

He stomped one foot, then the other. Then repeated.

Pretty cool.
