Buck shot

Click on any of the images to enlarge them.

On our way home from our morning walk, we saw a few deer browsing alongside the road. Kylie was good and didn't chase - because she was on her leash! She wants so badly to round them up! I will say, though, she's good about coming back when I call her.

I followed this little guy up the county road for a bit - he wasn't too sure of me, but didn't panic at my trailing him.

Until I spied him behind a bush, and even though I assured him I would leave him alone if he let me get one close up, it was no go for him! This picture is a bit blurry, but you get the idea. Sometimes I think I should get a bigger camera - I used a Canon Power Shot SD 630 which is a few years old - but then I think, I'm not a real photographer and I need a new computer more than a camera!

Awesome photos! Running into deer always feels like your getting some sort of special treat. I'm surprised he let you tail him as long as he did.

Hi, Lyon - I was surprised, too, that he just didn't take off when I started snapping pictures! It is rutting season and my brother in law tells me that males are a bit off during this time!

Thanks for stopping by - hope things are going better!
