"Wild Animals"

The theme this week by Christine is "Wild Animals". Mac, Kathy, Craver, Lew, Christine and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. We now post anytime before 4 PM EDT on Wednesdays and voting begins after that.

This is one of my favorite photo subjects. I decided to show some of the wild animals that come into my back yard. I love the Spring when the fawn are coming into the yard to feed. I enjoy the spotted colors of the fawns.
 As we get into the summer the fawns start to lose their spots. Here is a pair with one changed and the other still in spots.
I get a herd of deer coming into the back yard.
This deer was covered with snow which didn't bother her. She has a thick winter coat.
A big snowfall gives some interesting wild animal photos. I hope you spotted the deer.
The wild animals have to still forage in the winter. Here is a gray squirrel with a winter coat. 
Here is a wild animal contrast with the rabbit hiding in the shade near the groundhog.
See what the others show on my side bar.

The spotted Fawns take first place today. Beautiful and the green grass looks so good t this time of year.

Oh, these are great. I love deer, and have only ever seen one up close enough to get a shot (in my blog post today). Alas, I live in the suburbs where the wildest critters are usually rabbits and squirrels, lol! But we do get an occasional deer, a skunk, and lately some coyotes!

We get squirrels, rabbits and groundhogs in our yard, but not deer! With the exception of eating the bird seed, I don't think I would mind seeing a deer or two in our yard.
