I spent the last week walking around with my Contaflex. I started up on Monday with a hike through the arroyos and foothills of the Sandia Mountains just east of town. The ragged summit of the Sandias snagged some low clouds, but they only leaked a few shreds of rain. A couple mountain bikers appeared for just an instant on the trail.
I veered off the trail and two mule deer jumped up in front of me. They bounded off a few yards and then stopped to study my intentions. I made a couple shots with the Contaflex. When I stepped forward, the deer slipped into the trees. I moved up slope just a little and the deer reappeared, stopped. to look at me for another moment, and then they were gone.
