Urban Deer/ Camera Critters

Out and about

Deer appear to be getting very brave. Cars don't seem to bother them much...

Oops! Did I hear a shutter click?

...but people with cameras are very scary!

To join in the fun, visit Misty Dawn at CAMERA CRITTERS.

What a sweet little lady. I hope she stays safe.

I can't get close enough to the deer around here to get a good shot. The shutter scares her more than a car. Not good. I hope her mother taught her to look both ways before crossing the street.

Really the deer are in your streets. WOW. Charmaine

texwisgirl said...

:) be safe, little deer!

George said...

You could have taken this picture on our street. The deer down here are quite brave as well.

Birdman said...

NOT cute when they 'attack' a garden!

Jacob and Lois Anne said...

So cute! These cute little things can be a real pain, though. I remember in Minneapolis they'd come in the yards and eat everything in sight!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend, EG!

Lois Evensen said...

Such fun to see the deer, but I am sure there are those who don't welcome those deer in their gardens!

Halcyon said...

What a cute young one! We saw deer running through the backyard of the first house we bid on in Pickering. We thought it was a sign. Guess not. :)

Kerri said...

Those are superb captures!!

We have LOTS of issues with deer running in front of cars around here - not fun to drive at night when you can't see them.
I hope she made it safely home :)

ah, i love deer. i have about thirty who visit our farm each evening. their coats are scruffy with change but soon they will be covered with summer's coat of golden browns. if you love flowers or veggies, i am giving away a white flower farm gift certificate. i would love for you to visit sometime soon! happy spring!

Kathy said...

Great closeup captures. I have actually seen deer on our road waiting on the roadside for a car to pass before crossing! Birdman is right about deer and gardens not mixing! Many of our gardener neighbors have electric fences; however one friend had a deer jump the electric fence and then proceed to eat all the fresh little veggies coming up!

Fantastic photo! Very sharp. I would say people with cameras are very loving.

ladyfi said...

LOL - so charming!

Gary said...

Great capture!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

Deer are so fragile and graceful.

They are having a party in your gardens :)

Deer used to be animals that hid in woods. Times have changed.

Lúcia said...

Great shot of this beautiful deer, hope she is ok, it's not good for them to be so close to people...

Betty Manousos@ Cut and Dry said...

I do love deer.

Those shots are really wonderful!

Thanks for sharing.

RedPat said...

She is very wary of the paparazzi! Great capture.

nanny said...

Really not afraid....great shot!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

She is so sweet -- sorry you scared her, but glad at the same time, because the picture is excellent! Deer do seem able to adapt to population growth (unless the people have cameras evidently!)

chubskulit said...

Now, that is what I call beauty!

Please come and see my critter post. Have a great weekend!

Ms. Burrito said...

Lovely critter!


Would you come and see my critters? Thank you!

eileeninmd said...

They are cute, I hope they are safe and stay away from the cars.

You can never take too many pictures said...

I Love the Deer!!!! and am always excitied when I capture their essence with my camera....But!!!!!unfortunately they can cause severe damage to your property, may it be you car, flower or vegetable gardens and of course the deadly ticks infected with Lymm desease....my son-in-law was sick for weeks and my daughter's car was totalled!!!!! I wish people would not encourage them to suburban areas, they belong in the wild were they are safe from harm as well as ourselves....

VioletSky said...

We used to have deer showing up around here, but i haven't seen any in a few years. She is lovely. And brave!

snowwhite said...

Oh, deer are in the city!! Is it usual? They don't seem to be afraid
of people. In Nara Park, there are about 1100 wild deer. Deer world and human world are overlapped. So, sometimes there are troubles.
I hope they would be able to go home safely.
Have a nice weekend.

Martha Z said...

I haven't seen any urban deer around here but hubby saw an urban coyote the other day. I wish it would do something about that rabbit that is eating my garden.

Carletta said...

That little guy is cute and under the tree feeding. It's that one back there nibbling on the bushes that you have to watch out for. :)
Wonderful shots of one of my favorite subjects!

stardust said...

Great capture! Why do deer roam into city? Probably for the sake of food. In and around Nara Park, humans and deer coexisted for more than 1000 years. If we see deer in the city, we are not supposed to give them food to let them back to the woody, grassy part, othrewise they would appear in city more often. There are "watch out deer" road-sign on the roads in Nara Park.

Adorable things!

Serline said...

Seriously, deer in your front porch?!? Guess it's a bit like those brazen wallabies in my hubby's backyard, back when his family was living in a small town in Australia.

Cezar and Léia said...

Awesome captures, this deer is beautiful!

Coy said...

Its interesting how the deer are adapting to city life. Perhaps they are finding it safer than living in the forest & fields. Never the less we can expect more and more of this as we encroach upon their homes.

Malyss said...

I like deers! they're so lovely, so cute, and seem so frail.

NatureFootstep said...

nice! We have some too, but the are roe deer :)

Jack said...

Gee, why didn't you just invite her inside, give her your favorite chair, turn on her favorite TV show and make her at home?

Rose said...

Are you sure you didn't pay him to come pose for you!

Stephani said...

Great capture. I especially like the top photo!

Miss Kodee said...

Deer always seem so fragile to me. I can't believe how close you got. Amazing photographs
