A deer in the grass while hiking on a trail

I See You: A deer is in the grass looking at the photographer. I was hiking a trail in the Huachuca Mountains during fall and there were many trees in full color behind the deer. I wanted to photograph the trees but a man was on the other side of the grass in the distance on another trail under a tree and wouldn't leave. I didn't realize that there were 6 deer in the grass until one started to move and I saw the tip of its ear. I captured this photo as the deer were moving and became more exposed as the grass wasn't so high.
