Camera critters, two bucks and a murder

"Here comes that man
with the fat yellow dog again.
We're outta here!"

"No, let's go this way...!"

How many crows does it take
to make "a murder of crows"?

There are four
in the photo on the left,
and six in the photo below,
but some are well camouflaged.

Camera Critters meme

Thanks, Misty!

Aw Lindy's not fat, just well-rounded. BTW I love the collective noun for crows. Did you know about the Parliament of owls? (and that owls have almost solid bone between their ears, so that figures, LOL!) Have a great weekend, Kay. Hugs to you all, Jo

Those deer are such handsome characters! And I had totally forgotten about this murder! I should have known! Crows do seem to enjoy wire watching! said...

Nice captures!

I don't see any crow for a long time here. Cute deer :)

Thanks for the visit.

Murder of crows? No kidding? That's the first time I've heard that one. I wonder how they came up with that one. There must be a good story behind it.

They can't talk, not with tv aerials on their heads !!! X

Great series of shots for Camera Critters Kay, those bucks are impressive animals aren't they? I wonder how they came up with a 'murder' of crows.

Fun series! I remember a book of collective animal nouns, something like 'An Exaltation of Larks" ... beautifully illustrated, as I remember...and that's where I learned about "Murder..." I've forgotten most of them, but murder stuck because it is so perfect. Gotta' look that book up.
