White-Tailed Deer

The "Gulch" Area of the Community

I occasionally come across one or several White-Tailed Deer when driving in the areas on the other side of my community.  I have been told by neighbors that we do, in fact, have deer in my own neighborhood that will come down to the lake very early in the morning in a couple of places along my street.  I have only seen one deer in my neighborhood and that was last summer and it was about 4 blocks from my house.  These pictures are not the best but they were taken from the inside of the car in a big hurry.  When we spotted the deer, it also spotted the car.  The deer then fled!  I have pictures of two different deer that were each grazing in a different place.  I have been told that there are many deer that come to the community golf courses in the early morning to eat the grass there.  The deer eat grass, tender leaves of shrubs and trees, berries, and fruits  The deer pictured here are both females called “Does”.  The first picture of  one of the deer is very blurry, so please excuse that.  Of course, the focus was better with the second shot, and you’ll see that that second shot was, yes, the end!  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger version.

  1. Very nice, Linda… We do see LOTS of deer on the golf course fairway –at certain times of the year. Recently, there is only ONE deer –that keeps wandering around the neighborhood alone. They usually come in groups of 7 or 9….

  2. Isn’t it so nice to see them! They are such pretty creatures! Not all that easy to photograph either!
