Your Sunday Best!!

It's been too hot to ride the bikes (enter a sad face)
but I miss my cute deer when I don't get to see them.
So the other night we drove the 4 wheels to Allaire,
just so I could see them,
and to be sure there were no "births" since we had last been there.

It was late, the fields were quiet...
this big guy was hanging around, alone.

He noticed us as soon as we stoped the car,

he kept an eye on us but did not run off.

I've never seen this deer before,
he had a large growth just under his mouth.

I was on foot here, this one let me get pretty close.
I'm not sure what it is about seeing these wild animals, wild.
There is just something about it that really makes my heart happy.

Sharing today's big guy with Nancy at A Rural Journal



I am open to all praise and comments that,
1. It's Saturday and I have my Your Sunday Best "ready"!
2. That's it's very early on Saturday and I posted my 
Your Sunday Best!
3. That if I had not had to use the ladies room (TMI??),
I might have been first!!

  4. I love to go deer hunting. Such a beautiful animal.

    I wonder what kind of growth that poor creature has.

  16. I love deer! We have lots of them around here. The only downfall is they are always near the road and at night you never know when one is going to dart out in front of you.

  17. Oh the poor deer! That growth looks awful! I saw 'my' deer in the pasture again just before dark. They are pretty, but a nuisance too. They've been munching on my roses, I saw the evidence today!

  19. Great photos, Debbie! Deer get some strange growths sometimes. Often from injuries and other times it's kind of a mystery. As long as they're able to eat, they're usually okay.

  24. Nice shots. The deer looks pretty healthy, despite the tumorous growth.

  25. poor guy. although he looks healthy so i guess that lump doesn't affect his eating. nice captures!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Ha! Great capture! Every time I see one of these I'm either in my car, and they are on the road, or I don't have my camera in hand!
