Vanishing Critters

Surrounded by woods here, the trees and other vegetation not only offer shelter to many animals, but also give me the opportunity to watch them.  Almost daily, I see the small herd of deer that tiptoe through the brush looking for something to nibble on.  






Spotting me through the slider, the doe stops while I remain motionless watching her.  The others have moved on.  Then deciding it's safe, she joins the herd,vanishing once again.

What a joy to be able to watch them on a daily basis. It's too wide open here for deer to roam around in my back yard.

Tasty! I foresee some venison jerky and sausage in your future!

We used to see deer in the field behind us...now we see houses. It's just not the same.

Beautiful captures. The deer have been in hiding here the past week or two as it's been so cold but they often cross the field at night as we see their tracks in the snow.

cool. in the woods out back here...i see signs of the deer...like piles of pOOp and footprints. but unfortunately...we have some new neighbors somewhere on the OTHER side of the woods who keep up with some daily target practice!! and those are some LOUD guns!! i think it tends to keep the critters away! :(
nice deer shots. i like your header too. it might have been there for a long time...but i've been gone a long time....

I would love to see the deer outside my windows.They are so cute. I believe between the dogs and the hunters in my neighborhood, the deer have gone into hiding.. Great post and images..

The deer have moved on from our area of houses being built and hunters lying in wait. You are seeing them at their best JP, free and ghost like to remain undetected.

You're right about the deer and other critters. Today there was a opossum up a tree, and Todd saw it long before I spotted it, and he's that way with the deer too.
