Deer Photos and Information

Two bucks eating grassIt was nice to go out in the late evening with Mocha, my calico cat. She loves it when I let her stay out after dark. It certainly was cooler when the sun went down. The outdoor lights were on, but I could see better when the moon came up. It looked big and yellow just over the horizon.


I saw some mule deer and figured Mocha would want to bother them, like usual. She likes to stalk them and pretend she is trying to catch one. I was right- she ran right in, but got nervous when the bucks turned their attention towards her. Her bravado has limits, apparently.

I watched the deer graze for a while, then I sat down in the grass in the middle of the small herd. Soon the five deer lay down to chew their cud. The young six point buck and his doe were nearest to me. I watched them chew and listened to cicadas in the trees somewhere. Mocha got bored when the animals wouldn't play and went to check out prairie dog holes instead. I could barely see her white parts moving in the dark. The buck next to me stretched out all four of his legs.

After about half an hour I needed my circulation back so I got up to collect Mocha. The deer did not bother to rise.

I enjoyed spending some time with my friends. Best of all, there was no price of admission.

Recently a friend invited me to Bluntsville, VA. This was 100 years ago a beautiful ore mining and plantation area.


It is now abandoned with old homes, plantations and acres of untouched forest.

It isn't unusual to have deer in our yard or the driveway. This evening on my way in I saw this beautiful deer waiting at the top of our driveway. I had just checked the mailbox and gotten back in the car when she came out.

When I look out my front window, I frequently see these 4-legged, beautiful deer come to visit. They eat the bird seed off the ground, and drink from the bird bath.

Almost every evening these little ladies come to our bird feeders. That's right, deer eating bird seed! In fact, we had to put the feeders up pretty high in the tree, or the deer knock all the seed out.


Now they just come and eat what the birds throw on the ground.

This is a picture of a tree stand my grandson built for hunting season. See the deer right next to it. He sure picked a great spot to spot deer.

We rented a cabin in Canaan Valley several weeks ago. It was so peaceful and beautiful there. Early one night, while out on the back deck, these deer came up real close to the deck.


We could almost touch them.

We had our first big snow and all the birds have been visiting the bird feeder, but I didn't expect this young deer to be there this morning. It was beautiful and a really natural holiday decoration seen out of our window!

We were at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo and walking next to the actual Metroparks. We were looking at the reindeer and I glanced into the park area and there were 3 deer.


This one was only about 4 feet away over the fence so I took a picture.

I looked out the kitchen window this morning and this is what I saw. I think deer are so pretty. They are welcome to enjoy the apples as long as they leave the garden alone and stay out of the highway.

The doe raised her fawns in our grove next to the house and garden. We saw them all summer. We live next to a gravel road and they are standing on our front lawn about 150 feet from our house.


They also helped themselves to some garden produce. They are beautiful animals.

We recently moved into a campground in Milton, FL and our neighbors feed the deer daily in their yard. All the campers line up to watch and some of them have never seen a deer this close. It's as much fun to watch the spectators as it is the deer!

Last winter I decided to take a trip to the Grand Canyon in Arizona. It is rare that we have cold weather here in Tahiti and I was looking forward to seeing the snow. I had heard that the Grand Canyon was amazing in the winter. I spent a week exploring the Grand Canyon and taking photos.

A whitetail deer showed up at our farm creek property as I was walking around with my camera. I believe that Michigan has a 1 million count deer herd. When the white tail goes up, the deer is alarming others of the uncertain situation. Usually, they will stand perfectly still like a statue, watching you.

Our yard borders the state gamelands. We have seen deer walk down our driveway and go across the street to munch on the vegetation in a vacant building lot. This particular day, the deer paused to munch alongside our driveway. She reached through the fork of the birch tree to get at something tasty.

This photo was taken in my yard. The wooded community I live in is also home to a large population of deer. They make their rounds thru the community looking for good things to snack on.

We just moved to a community that is nestled in the woods. The deer live here with us, they are part of the community. We have a large bay window in the living room, and this was my view when I glanced out the other day.

This picture was taken at Topanga State Park. We spotted 3 deer grazing and when we moved closer they did not get scared at all so I took some pictures.
