Early in the morning as the high tide wanes, we found this Buck Deer with one antler broken off. He was standing atop the barrier dunes looking towards the surf. We paused to watch.
Soon on this foggy morning the Buck became less and less concerned about our presence, and came on down to the beach.
Our Jeep being white on this foggy morning may have helped for soon he was browsing along the beach in front of us as we idled along behind him.
As a pickup truck began to approach from up the beach he became more and more agitated, and soon bolted over the dunes out of sight.
It was another perfect day of beachcombing on Padre Island.
