I think that she/he expresses caution by moving its ears in all directions where they can detect the upcoming noise. I haven't notice any aggression from the animal at that moment, but to be honest I was in a safe distance from it, with my 300mm lens, perhaps 20-25 meters away ...so the image was heavily cropped. That was a beautiful overcast day ...the type of light I always prefer when I am with my camera. Thank you for your comments, Ron!Appreciated!
