Camera Critters # 71

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

I was driving on some back roads with the grand kids as evening approached. I had just told them to keep their eyes open for White-tailed Deer when what should appear along side of the road. I saw one at first but soon realized there were two. I stopped the car and started to get some shots.
They stopped feeding and kept a close eye on me.
The one in the ditch could have disappeared just by feeding.
Another car started to approach our position and the deer decided it was too crowded for them. Take a close look at the one on the right as it makes its leap with its good bye flag up. It looks like it is sailing along.
The Ohio White-tailed Deer are well feed.

I love photos of deer and yours are wonderful. You are lucky to see the critters that you do just driving along. That's what I don't get as a city slicker -- but I can dream! :D

Happy Camera Critters

Great photos! I don't think deer are too keen on humans and rightfully so :)

Rose said...

Great captures, Fishing Guy!

Faye Pekas said...

They are beautiful critters. The were really alert with their ears perked up.

Janie said...

Deer are such beautiful creatures. It's always fun to see them bounding with incredible athletic ability.

Jane said...

They are so lovely, they are such shy creatures-we have deer here but they are too far away to capture.

What a delightful surprise! It's been a while since I've driven through deer country and happened on a scene like this, but I remember such events from my younger days. Just lovely photos here ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

The look on his face is so regal. I wish we had half the critters you get your way here.

I love to watch them bound away flashing their white tails.

George said...

Great captures, Tom. I especially like that goodbye flag in the last photo.

Love your deer pictures. We both posted about deer on the same day. We have lots around here and see them every evening when we walk around our subdivision. They come out of the woods and graze in the fields around us.

What a lovely sighting Tom. They do look fat and well fed on all that lucious grass. :)

They are beautiful and look bigger than our mule deer. What a nice treat for you and the grandkids.

Luke said...

That's to bad that the other car scared them away.

Minie said...

nice gorgeous deers.

Sreddy Yen said...

Cute deers~! They look a bit different to the springboks we have here in South Africa.

Gorgeous animals - lovely shots

Warren Baker said...

Lovely deer shots FG. Not a species I will get close to on my patch!

Larry D said...

Great captures! They really do move effortlessly.

Willard said...

That was a good encounter, Tom. The deer certainly make life more interesting. The only trouble with me is that I am basically photographing the same three rack bucks over and over, but that will change soon when the rut kicks in.

Tipper said...

Love the deer shots-and the new header.

Adrienne in Ohio said...

These are great shots, Tom. So neat that you get to share moments like this with your grandkids!

Thanks for your comment today. I love the name you gave the bug--that's exactly the type of description I was hoping for. :)

T and S said...

Lovely shot of these deers, its nice to see that you managed to get these cool shots before they bolted.

SandyCarlson said...

I get the feeling they enjoy you as much as you enjoy them.

Craver Vii said...
