Camera Critters #24

Camera Critters by Misty Dawn, go here to see who's participating.

My friend told me there were deer behind the plant. I ran and got my camera and quietly walked to the back of the property. Out of the wooded area come a fawn and a doe. I thought these were the same ones I saw a few weeks back.
They worked there way along the back of the property browsing from the grass and trees. "I think I have an itch on my chin mom".
She is a good looking mom.
"We can both get a bite of this tree".
"Oh oh, something is wrong".
"I'll go over and investigate, maybe if I paw the ground it will get scared." I never moved a muscle.
"I guess you are harmless and I'm still hungry".
"Come along and move over here".
They always give that one look back.
This is not the end of the story and I will finish the story next week for Camera Critters.

Beautiful deer pictures! And yes, she is a good looking Doe. So much bigger than the ones I see here. I am used to the biggers ones in WV. But big or small they are all beautiful.

It's awesome to have them right there in your yard. But how do you keep them from eating stuff you don't want them to eat?

nice photos! looking forward to the rest of the story!

Tootie said...

I had to smile when I read the part about how they always take one last look back. I have noticed that myself. It's like they wonder why we're staring at them. :-)

Carletta said...

My regular fawn visitors to the yard have lost their spots - they are growing so fast.
If you just took these this one must be a late birth.
Nice shots.

April said...

Sweet pictures of the deer! Nice sequence of their movements. The fawn is really precious. Many thanks to your friend, too.

Salty said...

Cute story Guy! You must not look too big a scary to have them come back to investigate.

I see the mother is beginning to change to her winter coat. Our deer here in SC Pa are shedding also.

Abraham Lincoln said...

I would trade you my two eye teeth for these animals for a week or so. I would be so dumbfounded I probably wouldn't have sense enough to press the shutter button much less take my eyes off the critters.

Such an inspirational post. Your work is brilliant.

Gina said...

Yesterday, I found a fawn laying under our largest gardenia bush. I couldn't believe my luck -- no camera!

By the time I returned, its mother had come to retrieve her baby. Both were gone. I saw the white tails disappear into the wood line.

I'm so envious of these shots!

Blessings,
Lacy
