These guys were so much fun to watch and photograph. If only the light had been better. It was a pretty drab day & I did not expect to shoot much. More or less ran up on the hill to see how the views had changed. First I saw the doe, then one younger one and then all at once the second one. They spent quiet a bit of time checking me out before they finally left.
Then I came home and had a 4 point buck about 25 feet from my kitchen window. He was helping himself to the Swiss chard remaining in the garden. I ran for the camera but he spotted everyone looking out the window and I did not get any shots.
So nice!! Wonderful composition, lucky you :D
Best greetings, Ritva
You are so lucky, JF, I'd love to have deer living so close. Make sure to plant lots of Swiss Chard for next year. Great shot, BTW!
Ritva I was so excited to get to see all these interactions. Usually they are quiet and still or continue to eat but never such a show as these guys put on for me.
Theolfa we have commented on how much wildlife we see & feel very blessed. Once years ago we watched a Mom fox bring her young out to hunt in our hay field. We were standing on the hill & the garden with a great view and the wind was in the right direction to carry our scent away from them. Of course I will plant lots of Swiss Chard for next year....we like it too:))
You really are lucky to have such beautiful creatures roaming about.
The most interesting thing I've had nibbling on my garden was a run-away chicken!
LOL! Yes, we are very lucky. I see something every day.
Yesterday I saw 3 eagles - one in beautiful light on a tree top near home. Then another two on either side of the road in a pasture. One was in fantastic light and out in the pasture with some cattle lying near it. Alas! I had NO time at all to stop for photos!
yeh, i agree- with wildlife its all about luck. :) and the best things will be seen when there is no camera handy. :) lovely shots! they got furry tales!?
Undayou are correct that is always the case.
The whitetail deer has a fairly long tail with s furry white underside that they flash up above their back when they run away.
Very pretty, good shot!
Thanks! I really like this shot because of the different moods of the deer.
