Saturday Critters ~ 166 ~

- Valentine's Day was special - 
especially the drive home because we drove past this beautiful...

The hubs is an expert at the quick stop, pull over,
I am an expert at finding the camera and changing the lens,
because as you know, you never have on the right lens to capture the moment you are in.

I spoke softly and asked her to stay...

she did for a while but then scampered off.

She had friends waiting for her - aren't they beautiful.
When I see them I am reminded of real nature, 
that they survive on their own not caged or cared for by humans.
It is one of the only wild animals I see in this area,
and they always bring me so much joy!!

Sharing today's images with 
Eileen at Viewing Nature With Eileen 


  1. Oh wow oh wow!! Such amazing photos. You truly have a magical eye and camera!

  2. We have deer in our back yard and in the yard next door almost every day in the wintertime but I can NEVER get good pictures of them. I don't know what it is, but their beauty is hard to capture--and you did it perfectly! If anyone saw my pictures next to yours they'd easily see the difference between an untalented and a talented photographer!

    1. i just got lucky and i have a great camera!!!

  3. Very nice, Debbie. Precious the deer. Bambi left you very good photos
    Good weekend.

  4. How fantastic that you had time to stop and take some wonderful images of the wild deer before they trotted off. I love to see them running free but not so keen when they run out in front of the car!
    Have a lovely weekend :)

  5. Even though I live in a rural area, I rarely ever see deer.

  6. These photo's have brought me joy too.
    Thank you

    Enjoy your weekend

    All the best Jan

  7. Hello Debbie, Bambi and her friends are beautiful. I always enjoy seeing the deer. Lovely photos. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend!

  8. Oh so beautiful. The light on the last ones is just perfect.

  9. They really are beautiful animals! And I love the shots where the background falls away in soft colors!

  10. We have so many deer around here that they trample and eat the farmer's corn crop and cause quite a bit of destruction. I guess that's why now, they allow hunter's to take 2 deer a year and want mostly the does taken to stop the baby boom.

  11. They are so beautiful, so neat that you were able to see all her friends too! When we lived in New Jersey there were always a bunch of them that hung out on Ft. Dix that we would see, especially in the evening times.

  12. Breathtakingly beautiful, my friend. We have Mule Deer here so seeing your White Tail Deer was truly a delight :)

    Hugs to you!

  13. Oh happy Valentine's day to the Bambi.

  14. They are gorgeous Debbie. Have a wonderful weekend.

  15. Really beautiful creatures Debbie - I can imagine your excitement at seeing them, it must have been wonderful being so close!

  16. Wow, what a lucky, wonderful meeting this was. Even for us!

  17. You and hubs are quite the team ~ gorgeous photography of the lovely deer ~ thanks,

    Wishing you a Happy Day ~ ^_^

  18. I have loved seeing and watching deer through the years. I think they are beautiful animals. We live in a very big suburb area and this year two dear ran right past our mailbox one day. We have never seen them this for down into the city areas; interesting. Of course, there was no way to get a picture; they were on the run. Hugs~

  19. We're enjoying our, too. Soon they'll disappear for summer!

  20. LOVE!! Great photography, Debbie. :)


  21. Deer are some of my favorite animals in the world. You found some beauties. Loved seeing your wonderful photos of these graceful animals.
