Three White-tailed Deer

Deer are such beautiful animals!  We went out for an early evening drive to the other side of our community and came across White-tailed Deer grazing, or eating,  in the tall roadside grass in two locations.  The deer love to eat grass and tender leaves.  In the first spot, one deer fled across the road and one stayed put.  These both were does or females.  I got a close-up of the one that fled into the bushes.  All of the pictures were shot from the car so please excuse the fuzzy look.  Some pictures were taken through an open side window, and some were taken through the glass.  The deer at the second location was a young buck or male.  That deer is growing a small rack of antlers.  The deer are all over our community but we have many fewer where I live as it is much more developed near my lake-side home.  I was over-joyed to see these deer!  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger photograph.  Enjoy!

  1. Glad you got to see the deer, Linda… We have many more over here since there are still quite a few undeveloped lots –where they live… We have an undeveloped lot next to us and several across the street… AND–as you mentioned before, the deer love to feed on golf courses in early mornings and evenings.

    Great pictures.
    Hugs,

  2. I love to see them too! When I came home this afternoon there tree in the yard: they are welcome guests (even more welcome this year because I fenced off the garden area).

    • Hi Montucky – It is a pleasure to see the deer! I am glad you are able to keep your garden safe. Nice to have both the veggies and/or flowers, and the critters.
