The deer are getting all TOO familiar with my yard. They finished off our garden, and when my wife yells at them, they just come closer. This morning, a buck visited for the first time.

One of the birds I've most enjoyed shooting this summer has been the wide collection of indigo buntings we have. However, they've begun to lose their color as they begin the shift to winter colors.

His feathers are looking about as bad as the dying leaves that have been burned by the hundred degree temperatures.

I like the shots...that's quite a back yard you have there...seems more like a wild life preserve.:-)

lol lesmore. My house sits on the side of a mountain with five acres of woods on the front and both sides (The rear backs up on a power line cut). I love the fact that we cannot see another house. Our dogs keep down the number of squirrels and rabbits we have, but they have become so used to the deer that the dogs think the deer belong and won't chase them. While I was taking the shot of the buck, my labrador was sitting at attention beside me watching the deer.

I do get a lot of opportunities with a wide variety of birds. Most common are cardinals, chickadees, and buntings, but I also get a good selection of woodpeckers, finches, warblers, and others.

I never saw the most interesting animal, but for about three years we had a bobcat prowling the woods on the east side of the house. We would hear him snarling at night, but never saw him, and haven't heard him in the last couple of years.

You're a lucky man having that much nature and having what sounds like beautiful acreage.
