Deer or rabbit camera critters?

Caught on film at just the right (or wrong) time, these deer show they don't all run quite the same way. Thanks to Lindy and her daddy (my husband and intrepid photographer, Richard Schear) I am left to ponder the question of how deer do run.
Those are some of the local greenhouses draped in snow and ice in the background. Lindy knows just where and when the greenhouses dispose of cucumbers that are too big or too small or not shapely enough to sell to the public. Lindy loves cucumbers!

Camera Critters, hosted by Misty Dawn, who has a darling new baby keeping her busy but she keeps Camera Critters going, nevertheless. Thanks so much, Misty!

I'm also linking to Eileen's brand new feature, Saturday Critters.

I am not sure which amazes me more - the photo or the fact that Lindy loves cucumbers. About even, I think. Hee hee.

What an excellent action shot, Kay. The second deer certainly looks like a rabbit! I want to join Camera Critters which I see here on your post and also on Eileen's but over the past three months my time has been so taken up with household issues. The pet demographics have been adjusted so things will improve from now on (see tomorrow's post which I mentioned on your weekend reflections post!)(((Hugs))) Jo

Hi Kay. When you said Lindy loves cucumbers and because I'd never heard of a dog liking such a fruit, I had to check on Google. So it is OK, just sounds a bit weird. Thanks for all that info on Leonard Cohen. I have an album up in the loft somewhere. Your poem is brilliant and one even I can understand.

What a beautiful shot! The principle is the same, methinks. Those great hind feet! I took the cats for walkies, again. There was a smaller deer tracks, followed by a larger coyote or wolf track. Such is life!
