Default Oh Deer Again

When I got up from the breakfast table this morning I caught movement out of the corner of my eye and was amazed to see 5 Deer in my yard.

I ran upstairs and got my K-5 with the Tamron 180-250 on it and came down and began shooting. The Deer stayed in my yard for about 20 minutes. They looked on edge and were at times all looking in the same direction. We have a Coyote that has been around the neighborhood (in my yard in fact) and a neighbor lost a Jack Russell Terrier to It. The Deer may have been spooked by it.

The Deer looked healthy except for what looked like a little patch of mange on some of their legs. Perhaps Mole who has seen far more Deer than I can tell me what he thinks those patches on the legs are.













All the pictures were shot through my kitchen window that has two paines of glass.

Lou

Nice ones, Lou. All I've been seeing up here lately are turkeys. Every single day. They are muliplying like rabbits.

Hope they never found whatever was spooking them. They certainly do look alerted.

Very nice Lou...looks like they were posing for you. Love the bright white snow serving as a backdrop for them!

Really nice shots Lou. Very well done. Looks like they have survived the winter quite well (so far, at least).

Great poses, and amazingly good work through the glass.

Not sure what you meant by the "mange patch." Perhaps you are referring to the tarsal glands? Here's a short article:
