Tranquility?




We love watching the deer around our house, and every season has it's own fascination.

Several of the does are pregnant now

and it won't be long before spotted fawns are skipping through the grass.

The bucks are just ready to sprout new antlers.

 It's always a peaceful scene...






























Well, not always.































These 2 got into a into a fight over breakfast the other morning,

but nobody got hurt.

When it was all over, somebody wanted to fix the blame.





























"He started it."

Simply amazing! You see the most incredible sights right in your own backyard! The neat thing is how you capture the animals' personalities. I don't think many people are privileged to see this sort of thing, and now I can see it, thanks to you!

I love these deer shots - you live in such a beautiful spot to be able to photograph nature and wildlife the way you do. It's always a pleasure to come and see your latest photos.
I had to laugh at the way you invented a scenario for the fighting deer! I shall look forward to seeing your captures of the spotted fawn when they are born.
Have a beautiful weekend!
