Our World Tuesday: oh, deer!

Yes, the deer are back in "Lindy's coulee" — beside the red-stone walking path where Dick and Lindy go for their favorite walks. Dick has seen a few deer in the distance but now Lindy has seen some, too, and she's a very happy, very excited dog. How she'd love to slip her leash and gambol through the tall dry grass with her graceful acquaintances. I'm sure she'd love to be friends, but the deer don't know that. Maybe in a few years, the word will be handed down from doe to fawn:
You know that big yellow dog with the curls and the too-short legs? She wants to run with us. She'd never be able to catch up, of course, but she doesn't mean us any harm. We've known her for years.

Great camouflage in the grasses for those lovely deer but I’m sure Lindy can spot them from miles away. If only they would slow down and say hello! All Lindy wants to do is play. :)

They are so beautiful! And you got some great shots, Kay! I can just imagine how Lindy would love to play with them!! Hope your week is off to a good start! Enjoy!

Gorgeous photos of these beautiful animals. I can never get over how such large creatures can melt into the landscape.

That deer surely looks very well fed and fit, Kay. I love the way it melds so very well into its environment. Lovely shots.

Terrific captures.

Carver said...

Wonderful shots of the deer. I love the idea of word going round that it's safe to play with Lindy.

Gaelyn said...

I hope deer oral history works for Lindy and these beauties hang out in your backyard for many generations to come.

Ebie said...

Oh, how swiftly the deer dances and hops.

Nice action shots!

I just love wildlife sightings, great shots of the deer. Have a great day!

Seasons said...

Such vitality! Of course, with all that nutrition and wide open spaces. So sweet, imagining about Lindy with the fawn. Might we write a draft for a Disney classic?! Children will love it. Count me among them.

Such a lovely place for a walk with the dog -- even without the wonderful deer it would be lovely for Lindy and those who walk with her!

Poor Lindy, it must be so frustrating not to be able to go play with the deer.
Lovely photo's, and they do blend well with their background.
