You’ve got some nerve!

I thought I was all alone…but I hear the unmistakeable galumphing of a Velociraptor.DSC_9739 deer in the woods wm

 

THERE IT IS!DSC_9751 deer and turkey wm

 

Don’t get me wrong, I might be a little nervous but not enough to stop eating.DSC_9792 chewing leaves and watching a turkey wm

 

Yep, I’m sticking my tongue out at you, you don’t scare me.DSC_9791 Sticking my tongue out at a turkey wm

I SAID I WAS LEAVING, CAN’T YOU SEE ME RUNNING? DON’T PECK ME WITH THAT BEAK OF YOURS!DSC_9837 I'm going I'm going wm

 

I gave you last night to cool down, came back to have my breakfast of sweet new greenery and you do THIS to me?  I didn’t bring my buddies with me to intimidate YOU, this is just not fair. DSC_7386 wm So What Are You Guys Up To

 

 

Finally, fresh leafy greens.

I wonder how the deer feel when spring arrives,the trees unfurl their leaves and suddenly they have fresh, fresh, fresh food?New Mother eats tasty leaves wm

 

This buck worked it’s way into the Phlox and honeysuckle bushes, it later told me it was trying to find the most nutrient dense leaves and complained that mother nature had stocked them “way at the back of the ‘shelves.'”  I don’t know why he was complaining, he was tall and he had a longer neck than I do…if that was my food source, I would starve to death because of my short neck…no way could I reach that high.

LATE IN THE AFTERNOON, SOMETIMES WHEN IT’S ALMOST DUSK, THE DEER START TO MAGICALLY APPEAR FROM THE WOODS. 

IN THE TOP IMAGE, THEY’VE HEARD A CAR PULL INTO THE DRIVEWAY…MOST OF THE TIME THEY MAKE SURE THAT THERE’S NO THREAT AND THEY GO ON ABOUT THEIR BUSINESS.

WELL, OK…I LOVE THESE LITTLE GUYS…

THIS IMAGE IS FROM MY ARCHIVES…IT WAS TAKEN SEVERAL YEARS AGO.  MAMA, THE THREE LEGGED DEER, LEFT THESE LITTLE ONES FOR SIX HOURS ONE AFTERNOON…IT’S PART OF THE PROCESS AS THE BABIES GROW BIGGER AND STRONGER AND FASTER… THEY ALWAYS COME BACK FOR THE BABIES.

I STAYED GLUED TO THE WINDOW FOR ALMOST THAT ENTIRE TIME AND SHOT, I DON’T KNOW HOW MANY IMAGES.

IT WAS A WONDERFUL DAY…VERY SPECIAL.
