Good Morning Deer

While watching a Great Gray Owl hunting in the morning, this young White-tailed Deer entered the field and wandered around for the better part of an hour.  It saw me and the owl but was not particularly interested in either of us.  Preferring to devote its attention to finding the best grass shoots and dandelion stems.

A little earlier, I came across another White-tail in a forested meadow.  This young stag was head down eating when I noticed him but then lifted his head and gave me a beautiful look before I left.

  6. I can’t get over how thick the fur or hair is on the first one and like the action of its lips drawing in the grass. The pose of the young buck is great in a beautiful setting. Both have some flesh on them which is good to see after seeing others with their ribs sticking out. Lovely photos.

  7. Beautiful . . .
    The insects are so bad here this year, the deer (all animals) are constantly moving, twitching, running, etc .. to get away from them. Nice to see the deer relaxed and enjoying breakfast. When you take this pictures are you hidden or out in the open?
