Do You Suppose They Pose?

I've certainly addressed the issue of deer being so elusive and shy but now I'm starting to think they're clever and bold. Why else would two deer stand in an opening, staring at me like I'M an alien, and begging to have their picture taken.

I can just hear the conversation taking place as I approach. "Watch this" one will say. "She won't see us even though we're in plain sight". Then when I do see them and stop to take pictures, they don't flee; they just stand and stare at me.

See the pavement right in front of them? That's the end of the cross path. They couldn't be more obvious. But still, they just stand and stare.

Then the mom says, come on let's go. I'm bored. Let's show her our butts.

But the kid, being a kid, says no I just want to stay and stare a little longer.

Okay, I'm outta here.


  1. Wow! Those are great pictures!! I cannot believe they let you get that close to them! I think they really were posing for you!! They are so pretty! I love these pics!!


  2. Those are really pretty, healthy looking deer. Nice pics.

  3. lmao, I think you're right. It looks like that is probably the conversation that they are having. I just can't believe how close they let you get and how long they pose for you. They are beautiful! I think the little one's butt shot going into the trees is so cute!!

  4. Sounds like exactly what they might have been saying. So cute!!


Gentle, strong, kind or true, I'd love to hear what you have to say.
Short or long, it's up to you, your comments and thoughts really make my day!
