Oh deer

There is a place not far from where I live that I expect to see deer. But I never do. It's right by a very busy road. However late last month I looked over just before that place and what did I see?

I had to pull over and take a few photos. This guy is obviously a male. You can see his little antlers.

Perhaps a young lady hanging out with him? You can see a few of the many cars that drive this road.

I was using the zoom on my camera because I didn't want to frighten them. I'd hate to see them try to get across that road.

Thankfully they weren't too scared but continued grazing. These are Columbian black tailed deer. They actually help us by eating things like poison oak.

The grounds they are on belong to St. Mary's but there weren't many people around since it was a Saturday.

Off they go. There were four but two were off to the side. I was rather happy to see these deer because they don't show themselves often around here.


  1. Thank you for providing a smile in the middle of a hectic weekend. Look! There's Bambi! ^^ They're so delicate and those ears are to die for.

    No deer where I am. Sigh. Do stray cats count?

    1. Happy to have helped!

      Yes I can't get over how thin their legs are yet they are able to get around easily. They are pretty.

      Hum, plenty of deer in Japan. But stray cats always count. I took a photo of one the other day thinking about how he reminded me of the stray cats in Japan and that you would have admired him.
