Camera Critters and Saturday's Critters

Wow it is so good to be back!  Click to Enlarge Photos

Joining in with Eileen (Viewing Nature) for Saturday's Critters and also Camera Critters.


I've had these photos in my files since May and just haven't gotten around to posting them yet.

We took a little drive (My mom, Coleen and I) one afternoon and on our way home we spotted these deer on a hillside so I pulled over and snapped a few pictures.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I love seeing deer in the wild and actually being able to photograph them.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The one on the left was really checking me out.  The one on the right said, "Who cares, let's eat!"
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
This one showed up to join the party.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Now we are really being watched.
 
Finally they decided they were tired of me snapping their picture so off they went.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I hope you enjoyed seeing them as much as we did.  I love the "White-Tail" deer in our part of the country.  Edit:  Thanks to Brian (Brian King Images) he helped identify these deer as Mule rather then White-Tail)  We have both in our area.  Another post here:  http://wishesdreamsandotherthings.blogspot.com/2012/08/whatever-wednesday-bennington-lake.html  Shows the White-Tail.

  6. Beautiful creatures, aren't they? When my friend and I go on our after work walk we often pass deer browsing within feet of us. I live and work near a heavily wooded area, but people encroach more on the critter habitat every year. Sad to see.

  7. Hi, Ida! Popping in to see what you're up to... you can come to my house and "shoot" as many deer as you want, lol! Love the little bee in your header! Have a blessed week!

  8. I love watching the white-tails here too! In fact, a doe and her fawn were eating the neighbor's weeds this morning...:)JP

  9. How cool! Nice shots of this little herd! I don't know what part of the country you're in, but I think what you may have here are Mule Deer, not Whitetails. Mule Deer backsides are predominately white with a white tail and black tip. White-tailed Deer have only a small amount of white on the rump and the topside of their tail is brown. Only the underside is white. When they are alarmed, they raise their tail exposing the white underside as a "flag" for the other deer.

  21. Nice set of photos! I thought they were Mule Deer as well - they have the bigger, mulish ears, hence the name Mule Deer.
