|Tasty bean greens! 7/8/12|
I am still amazed every time I see a deer or another wild animal...they are such marvelous creatures to watch! I have had the good fortune over the past couple of weeks to get some decent shots of some deer that have visited the field across the road from us.
I got this gal right before she headed into the weeds, and I didn't know she was there until I was alerted by my brother.
I decided to keep a more frequent watch of the field and was rewarded two mornings later with a mamma doe and her twins.
|At first, they came out of the weeds calmly...7/8/12|
|But children must play...7/8/12|
|Oops...not too sure footed, apparently! 7/8/12|
|Yummy greens! 7/8/12|
|Alert to sights and sounds...7/8/12|
|They moved within a small area to eat, never venturing far|
from the edge of the field. 7/8/12
|Here...she sees me but is more curious than afraid. 7/8/12|
|A full belly must have weighed on her...she laid down. 7/8/12|
It wasn't long before they became antsy and decided to head into the safety of the weeds and woods.
|For whatever reason...they became spooked...7/8/12|
|Off they go....7/8/12|
|Safety in the weeds...7/8/12|
Even though I have my camera set on silent mode, I swear she knew I was taking photos!
They get bit-up too by bugs!
|Ouch...ouch...I gotta bite! 7/8/12|
And need a brief rest...
|Okay...I'll lay down and watch you eat...7/8/12|
|Nah--I'll lay down and rest too! 7/8/12|
|This is the space between the two! 7/8/12|
I love watching these animals! They are so graceful and unassuming...we could learn a lot from them!
Thanks for stopping by...
