White-tailed Deer

 Deer in the middle of path

The deer must be very hungry to be out during daylight hours.  Clearly, this one knows I'm there with my camera.

Pondering the situation

Wondering if it should stay and munch on some yummy red-osier dogwood or follow the rest of its kin.

Turning off the path

It chewed off a few stems and then followed its family.

I am linking with Saturday Critters HERE.

Pretty deer, they do not seem to mind you taking photos. Thank you for linking up with Saturday's Critters.. Have a happy weekend!

William Kendall said...

They can be skittish, but this one seems okay. Beautiful!

Judy said...

I love that first portrait!!!! Maybe you are just in an area where they are used to being fed, and so have lost their fear of people...

Stuart said...

I guess you can't call this a deer caught in the headlights look... just one caught out in the open.

Lowell said...

This little sweetie must have know you were not planning anything harmful.

Lovely photos of one of my favorite animals!

Pamela Gordon said...

Beautiful captures! I noticed the red dogwoods all chewed down last Saturday when we were out.

Blackberry Lane said...

Beautiful pictures.

Lowell said...

I'm with you. I hate crowded beaches. But one must admit this is a pretty attractive place to be - especially on the weekends! :)

Roan said...

Nice of him/her to allow you time for a photo shoot. The ones I see are quickly on the run.

Lisa Gordon said...

Sandra said...

such a pretty doe!

Rajesh said...

Very lovely deer.

Judy said...

That must have been fun to find that beauty on the path. The White Tail Deer is so much prettier than our Mule Deer that we see here.

Alexa T said...

Such a cute innocent look in the first one.

I guess a lot of his food is hidden under that snow again. Lovely pictures.Have a great weekend.

Great photos. We don't get deer, nearby, so it's great to see some closeups.

What a beauty!

Kathy said...

Great shots. We have lots of deer here in East Texas and we occasionally see them in our meadow, in our driveway, and in our backyard. They're always a treat to spot.

Lovely photos! Love deer!

mick said...

Beautiful! and I really like the way you have caught the indecision shown by the body stance.

Karen S. said...

Hello sweet face, you are just adorable.

cieldequimper said...

Sweet!

RedPat said...

They are probably fed up with this winter too!

Gunilla Bäck said...

They're beautiful animals.

Jennifer A. Jilks said...

Interesting, our deer are here all the time! I hauled in some wood, and spotted several in the forest.
They are at the end, hopefully, the snow won't melt too quickly, and freeze plants, but we'll see what happens!

Ya, apples are pretty much buried by March's snow-cover.

Very touching photographs.

It appears she was posing for you. Lovely deer images!

Ruth's Photo Blog said...

The deer looks to be healthy and that is good. Last spring the deer around here were so skinny.

Looks like you discovered a deer supermodel. She sure posed good for you.

Karen said...

I love spotting dear when I am out and about, I rarely have my camera though. Terrific captures!

A fiend girl and a not shy deer.

Small City Scenes said...

We have been seeing more and more deer out during the day here too. I think they are getting hungry for Spring just as we are. Nice images. MB

see you there! said...

Lots of deer visit us in the mountains. They are quite used to us and unless we startle them we can watch them from the deck as they wander about.

kelley jensen said...

Yes I think they must be hungry. We have mule deer here in Utah.

Marie said...

She's lovely...I hope not too hungry! This heavy winter must be hard on all the critters!

It's been such a hard winter for the animals.
