oooooohhhhh deer!!!!

I spotted 2 gorgeous deer the other night on our way home from food shopping. Chuck spun the car around so I could get a closer look. I have never seen deer in this spot before and they actually let me get pretty close. I feel a little like the "deer whisper". I always walk slowly toward them and whisper sweet nothings, thinking somehow they will "connect" with me and not run off. It mostly works!!!!

At first they walked toward me,
almost as if they were trying to hear what I was saying!!


They moved closer together......


Then I got this shot and my heart skipped a beat!!!!!

One of my amazing blogger friends Tammy at Tammys Photography Spot has a similar picture of 2 white deer. It has always been my single most favorite picture of all time.

I will confess that I really liked the old, rundown, abandon chicken coop in the background!!

These pictures are straight out of the camera, I used the 200 mm zoom, no cropping, I was very surprised how close they let me get!!!

  9. It looks like you DO have the touch. The deer look like they've been enchanted by your spell. Good of your hubby to assist with your "Stop the Car" moment.
