We found the deer to be rather friendly when we stayed at Blackwater Falls.

Blackwater Falls State Park is named for the falls of the Blackwater River whose amber-colored waters plunge five stories then twist and tumble through an eight-mile long gorge. The "black" water is a result of tannic acid from fallen hemlock and red spruce needles. The falls are one of the most photographed sites in West Virginia.

Hello Michael,
This looks like a very cold day to me. Love the snow on their backs and their very contented postures. The one in the BG looks like a spike if I'm not mistaken.
The only suggestion I have is that the saturation might be just a tad too much, because the deer in the middle seems to have tiny red splotches on it's coat, otherwise a very nice image.
