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!

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.
