Oh deer...

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
That evening, the two adults were back out, and feeding.

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
Not twenty minutes later, by chance I looked back over in the field, and both doe were back out there!  

Even though I have my camera set on silent mode, I swear she knew I was taking photos!

All ears...7/8/12

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...
