I love this photo of the deer because it shows just how well wildlife adapts to the turbines. Farmers have reported seeing animals using the turbine shadows to escape the hot sun, distressed not a bit by the spinning blades overhead. The Spanish Fork Wind farm is located in Utah and is a smaller farm, providing energy to about 6,000 homes.
