Wednesday Potpourri - City Deer

I am so thankful for the little wooded are behind the house. It is filled with animals and every once in a while I'm there at the right time. I cleared part of the woods behind my yard. My gift
from nature is the deer came into view and fed in the area. My shed is to the right and my garden to the left.
This was a nice looking doe that was starting to fill out quite nicely from the Springs bounty.
She stayed a while then decided it was time to go.
Several days later she came back to the same spot and did some posing. We had cut the tree down and filled the area with cuttings. This didn't bother her a bit. Her coat is becoming a bit more red in color.
I gave her a hearty thanks before she ghosted into the background.
The woods and nature are so generous in their gifts to the camera.

I know how you feel we have a small herd of deer visit our backyard periodically and it is so nice to watch them as they nibble!!
Nice shots!

Isn't it lovely to have your own doe coming to visit? :) She is pretty too and will soon attract a mate.

Yeti? I don't think so. :)

How fortunate to find a deer in your own backyard! And yes, being at the right place at the right time with the right camera helps!

As a girl from the city who camped and was farmed out frequently my heart would skip a beat when ever I saw deer. Now as a farmer's wife for twenty-five years who has to guard her garden from the daily marauders, when I see a deer, my heart skips a beat and then I shoo them away.

I used to see deer out where I used to live in the country, but now I live in town =(

Seems like late I see the tail ends of deer more than I see the rest of them...and their tails seem so long. I need to post a picture or two that I have just to show....

I'd love that little dear to come visit me.

What an enriching experience for you. Thank you for sharing it.
Amazing shots. We don't get them nearby here in My Muskoka! Too many folks nearby.

A crazy deer broke into my church. The poor thing busted a window and left bloody tracks all over the carpet before fleeing the same way it entered. When the cleaning lady opened the building, it was the shock of her life to see blood and broken glass-- there of all places! Crime scene investigators closed off the area for hours before confirming that there was no foul play. (sigh) Oh deer!

The things God has created for us to observe are amazing.

Lovely deer! Do you leave food for them, or just let them nibble what they want from nature?
