sitka black-tailed deer and fireweed

sitka deer like to eat plants and flowers and sometimes lichen. IMG_2776sitka deer are never alone, they always have lots of very specialized bacteria with them. IMG_2779the bacteria doesn’t get a free ride mind you, they have to work very hard at breaking down all that cellulose in the deer’s 4 chambered stomach.

IMG_2780Sitka deer live in southeast alaska. they are usually smaller than other deer and they are always cute.

this is what fireweed is made of…

they look like this…
