LG vom katerchen


So sweet!
She looks so much softer than ours do.
I never tire of them even though they eat my plants but I agree with you - they were here first.


Dearest Sallie;
Wow, how LOVELY the Bambi(fawn)is♡♡♡ I wish I could come across with them like that(*^_^*) I can kiss the sweet eyes looking at you p;)

Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan to my dear friend in America, xoxo Miyako*


Our deer are white tailed here, Sallie, but, otherwise, look pretty much the same.
Right now, our herd is mostly eating the apples off of the tree and the doe are scampering about, looking for the boys. Rutting season has started.


Yes, there is enough room for all and I'm glad you get to see them so often. These shots are just adorable. I didn't know there was such a thing as a black tailed deer. The things I learn!

So cute! They do look different than our white tailed ones.


Oh how sweet she is... I am glad she is safe in your yard Sallie.... Michelle


How lucky you were to see this darling fawn. Nature is sure wonderful,isn't it?
Your comment on the cat sleeping and feeling safe enough to sleep like that is true. But...I don't feel safe around her. :) Wherever she came from before she choose us, they had to have been mean to her. She used to grab my ankles and draw blood; she has cut down quite a bit from attacking my hand and drawing blood; she even bit me once. A few wks. ago she slapped me hard in the face with her strong paw and caught me in corner of eye. She loves my boyfriend and so I figure a female hurt her at one time.
Well, anyway, I still try to keep her calm and she does make me laugh.
Have nice day.


These are one of nature's most wonderful creatures. Can't imagine shooting one. They can be a nuisance, though, when they get too friendly and eat up your garden! :)


He is really checking you out in that first photo. Probably wondering if your camera is some sort of firearm. They really are beautiful.


They are adorable!


Wonderful shots of the deer. You did a great job photographing them.

there is such a sweetness to a deer's eyes and grace in their limbs. sometimes they will pass through the woods behind our home and a few times on our front lawn... my heart always leaps a bit when I see them, they are so beautiful.


I suppose the neighbours don't appreciate their apples being raided but then then, there are still plenty left in the higher branches. When we lived in Vt., one of the joys of fall was watching the deer munching fallen apples in the orchard at dawn.

I'm a little mystified as to why your neighbours wouldn't want to see the deer? Maybe they value their vehicles and more than the natural world. Anyway I enjoyed seeing the young deer and I hope it found safety.


Viewing wild life so close is such a priveledge. Thanks for your comments on my blog. The building you are thinking of is the gherkin which is a different shape to the one I posted which is sometimes referred to as a car's headlight.


I think most people forget the critters were here first. Cute shot of your deer. It looks like a young one. Have a great day!


oh, looks so little! and sweet! :)


He is a lanky , cute deer. I guess they get used to you too.


They are a delight to see! But don't they ruin gardens?


I so love seeing the deer wander past my place and they aren't terribly skiddish in the protected park.

Seeing wildlife close is a real treat. Lovely captures Sallie!


You are definitely right! We live in the country in the Pacific NW and I always make sure we leave berries on the vines for our honored guests!
Enjoyed the photos:)


I so agree with you! I love seeing deer, so thanks for this image. I am grateful.
