Three Deer


After eating Mexican last night we drove home with our stomachs full. On both sides of the highway I spotted mother deers and their young. A few minutes later I was rushing inside my home grabbing my camera.

Upon returning to one of their common grazing spots I noticed a mother deer with her two babies grazing along a tree lined path. Each of the deer stood with pricked ears watching our every move, quietly. The babies inched closer to their mother with each click.

Not wanting to disturb these gentle creatures any longer we drove down the road a small piece to find the other mother and baby had already gone back into the nearby woods.

We have deer out back, too, but I don't see them much anymore. Looks like they were just as interested in you.

This reminds me of the deer I saw while visiting Virginia's blue ridge mountains... they never fail to awe me. Great shot!

Beautiful picture! :) we see similar sights on our way home. We are lucky to live past a preserved area - with greenery all around - maybe next time I shd take my camera :)

Have a nice day and a great weekend!

They are all looking at you! Are they very curious or skittish? Such a peaceful looking scene, Michelle.

Awwww...They are so sweet aren't they? Nice of them to wait until you could get photos of them Michelle...

Michele said...

It's so nice to capture these forest creatures in their natural habitat as you have done... beautiful photos.

I haven't been able to get any decent pictures lately as the temperatures have been quite warm and they have been in deep within the trees, I think.

They are absolutely some of the most gorgeous creatures.

One of the bonuses about golfing is how many animals I've come across. I've seen deer, bunnies, and squirrels. Oh, and a turtle :)

Hi Michelle, thanks for the visit and your comments - they were much appreciated.
We have have a lot of "posed" photos - I think my sisters managed to lose some of the "embarrassing" ones, but many of those we have are still good for a laugh.
Sadness I guess is always tempered by joy and the cycle of life continues.
Looks like you live in a wonderful place. It is so nice to be able to wildlife like that when you drive sround your neighborhood.
