Deer browsing in the Great Sand Dunes National Park in southern Colorado. The mountains are the Sangre de Cristo range. The yellow blooming shrubs are rabbitbrush. I created a number of different versions of this image, which can be found here, including cropped versions of the deer. http://fotoeffects.smugmug.com/Landscapes/Great-Sand-Dunes-National/9705555_Gh7iY#668378145_m8KpQ. However, I decided that it may be more interesting and pleasing to see the deer within their more complete environment and so chose this one as my daily.

These images are ones shot to post in the daily community on smugmug. I've been participating in this community for about six years. For the first few years, I tried to always post a shot taken either that day or the day before. Now, although I try to shoot everyday, I don't necessarily post the images on the same day they are shot.
