"D" here is for deer, at sunset

These deer didn't stay long when they saw Dick and Lindy out for a walk. They had found a good place for a bite to eat, but that human and that dog were interfering.


They would graze a while, back off a while, and didn't really offer themselves up for a good shot, even though Dick carried only a camera.

Usually they are gone in flash. I glad they stayed around long enough for you to get these excellent photos.

What's that you say? If these are not decent shots, I wonder what is?!!! Especially the top two. Magnificent beasts and perfect for the D theme. YAM xx

Oh Dear Deer!! What a delightful sight to face one in the open!! Great shots from your camera of course!! ;)

I am truly grateful that Dick carries nothing more lethal than a camera when he is out.
He makes good use of it.

Deer are always the most elegant animals and the bucks are impressive in autumn. Great post Kay. How nice of you to mention my name. I hope all is well with the two of you and your dog of course. Have a great Thursday!
