Deerly Beloved.....

I went out to do the 'wren watch' once again tonight and
again saw more in an hour at Barb's house than I see in a
week at mine. She is in a rural area and I live more near
the city. I think she left her luck behind when she went
South... and I must have found it... After doing the
wren shoot, I took a little ride to the park.
At first I thought this was a doe peeking around the
tree at me.


something behind the tree was good ...I see some lip licking..

Oh Wow! We are not a Ms. but a MR! in velvet.
What a lovely buck.


A real beauty.

I was happy to see this guy.
Then a little further down the road in a corn field

I actually saw quite a few deer... and this farmer is not
going to be happy ...

They were having a high ole time munching down the
corn stalks..
Caught! with a mouth full. Click to see close up.


Then, off they ran.

Now don't run off... stay tuned as you can see, I have some crazy shots of that wren in the garage, and also a cute fella that showed up on the road on the way home. Next post..

Thank God you live in a part of the world where a wilderness still exists for wildlife. Excellent photography.

Patty and I will be celebrating 53 years of marriage on July 12th. Think of it as a long-term relationship.

I have invited bloggers to offer suggestions on a gift for me to give Patty and the list would not be complete without your ideas.

Love Mr. Buck in velvet! The deer are very happy - no one has planted corn for a very long time where we live - it has been soy...soy and more soy! Corn is what the deer prefer and I bet we'll be seeing more. Glad you are having a fun time in my neighborhood!

Thanks Abe... I still live close enough to the 'wilderness' to get some nice widlife shots..

Ahh yes young prince! They are beautiful! .. Helen.

bird girl, this was my first young 'buck' this year. yippee and corn probably does make the difference for these deer.

Thanks Marsha!

Love the deer photos. I can see them off in the far distance, just cannot get close enough for a photo. Don't want them any closer though, for the same reason this gardener was upset when they found the result of the visit. Just wish I could see them up close somewhere else. May need to take a ride over to Cades Cove soon, you have given me inspiration.
