Saturday's Critters - February 20, 2016

 Hello & Welcome.

I'm joining Eileen (Viewing Nature with Eileen) today for SATURDAY'S CRITTERS.





Yesterday in my Willy-Nilly Friday Five post I featured a photo of some deer we saw while out and about the other day.  Today I thought I would share a few more of those photos.


This is one of the first one's we spotted as we pulled over to take some photos.  I've cropped this photo to get a closer view of the deer.


 This photo shows how far away they were.  I did not have the "zoom" on the lens in this shot.  - As you can see in the background there is a house beyond all that brush.


 When we first spotted the deer we could only see 2 but then they were joined by others.


Now there are four.
 

 Across the field those four will soon be joined by these 2.

Here they are looking towards the others across the field.  You can see the white on the underside of their tail...giving them the name: White-Tail Deer.


Let's make that 3 as another one emerged out of the bushes to join them and off they went to join the others.
 

 In this shot there are now 7 deer.




Another view of some of the small herd that gathered in the field.

Finally a review of yesterday's photo with 8 deer although I think we did count 9 by the time we left.



 I always enjoy seeing deer in the wild.  This particular area is surrounded by homes and a church is on the other side of the field to the left and across the road is a skate-board park and a soccer field.  The deer don't seem to mind the traffic driving by at all.

I hope you've enjoyed seeing my "critters" today.  Have a wonderful day.

  4. Oh what great shots. I always see wildlife when we drive to church and never have my camera! I'm going to take it tomorrow. You reminded me!
    Thanks for coming by and seeing my 'undercover kitty' I love the caption you gave.
    I think I'll add it.
    BTW I'm following you now. I thought I was but I guess not.
    I'll be starting a new linky on the First the America The Beautiful Hometown Tour.
    I'd love you to write a post about your town or area something to lure me for my summer vacation!
    Thanks for coming by and giving me a great caption!
    Enjoy your Sunday.

    I can tell they are on high alert - ears pointed listening for every sound.
    Not many have their heads down eating!
    Great shots indeed.

  16. I've had a super busy week, Ida, but wanted to stop and tell you how I enjoy and appreciate the photos. I'm so glad to see that none of these deer have that "bummer of a birthmark" on them. That has always been my favorite Far Side cartoon!

  23. It has been a long time since I saw that many deer in one spot...they used to be thick at the strip pits but now seldom see more than 2 o3 and those not all the time.

  24. Blessings I enjoyed your Saturday critters.
    I can't wait to see those fields in the spring!

  32. So nice! I love it when I am driving our country roads and you spot deer in the field. My last trip I only spotted a lot of wild turkey, but had no camera with me. My cell camera would not have captured them way back at the tree line.
