Oh 'Deer'

My husband is home on vacation this week and we are trying to get some work done around the house and yard. So, I have not had time to take my camera and get any shots. I saved up some 'Deer' pictures for just such an occasion. I have several places that I look for deer and have been lucky to see a few here and there.

This herd is near my dad's house, and I don't miss a chance to search the fields.






A field not too far away from where I work provides me with another opportunity. In the evening the sun is shining on this field and makes for some pretty shots.

On this day the turkeys were sharing the field with the deer.

Love this lone deer with a lone tree.

And yet another field I pass by lets me get these shy girls.

They were curious about my car stopped along the road and the camera snapping away.

Does she think I can't see her behind that limb?

Soon they tire of me and want to leave.

Yet another place I can get in even closer to these beauties.



These fields are not hunted and they are not afraid, munching on the greens.


Time for them to go and also for me ....
Hope you enjoyed the 'deer' post.

These deer pics are lovely, as are all your pics. I so enjoy visiting your blog!

Thank you for your comment today. I would blog more... but there's not much to blog about when you live in an apartment. lol But hopefully I will have lots to share in June. I'm going to be visiting family and friends in PA for a week or two, and I am SO looking forward to it! I haven't been there for almost a year and a half, and one of the things I am most looking forward to is just driving around the countryside and enjoying the beautiful scenery.

I'll be be spending most of my time in the areas of Bedford, Schellsburg, Shanksville, and Johnstown. Shawnee and the Schellsburg Cemetery are definite places that I will be stopping by. I can't wait! And I'm looking foward to getting a pizza burger at "The Brown Cow" in Pleasantville, which I believe is now simply called "The Cow." lol :)

How wonderful to be able to see all those deer - have you seen many fawns yet?

jalynn01 said...

Island Rambles: These deer are semi protected and are not afraid. Also it is not hunting season and that helps.

Marsha,
No fawns pictures yet...although I know they are being born, I just haven't had time to hunt them.

Abe, thanks for stopping by.
