Picky Eater


Watching the young deer mosey along the fence, I knew there was more than enough time to get the camera so I didn't hurry.

It sauntered slowly nibbling at certain vegetation almost being picky.


However, once I zoomed in, I couldn't help but notice a few things besides it's eating habits.






It was a young buck.

It was thin which the Pres said could be from the hard winter we had here.

And, have you ever seen a deer with STRIPED EARS?




Sharing oddities with you and those at

How interesting about the ears.

Very observant, the striped ears are neat. You must be happy the browsing takes place on the other side of the fence.
Enjoy your weekend JP.

What a unique and handsome fellow. We have not seen too many deer yet since the weather has warmed up. Perhaps they are finding what they need to eat in the forest this year.

He's a handsome boy, even if he is a picky eater, and has striped ears, I just hope the other deer don't laugh at him and call him names and not let him play any deer games ... :-)

He DOES have striped ears! I don't think I would have noticed, so you are observant. Fascinating
