Crops & Clips: Close to home

My weekly potpourri gathered from the archives features... watching the natural world close to home.

CRITTER: White-tailed Deer

In our local wetlands this past week. We do not see many deer, and it was a pleasure to see two does with a couple of youngsters, the one on the right sporting a new spike.

  12. The sky photo is really nice and the others are too.
    We get plenty of deer where we live and sometimes one has to be careful, even when riding a bicycle, to avoid a collision with them. I love them though. Makes the environment cheery!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog.

    Have a Beautiful Day!

    Peace :)

  14. All three photos are delightful - the 'twins' are so cute (not twins? They really looked they were. Do their parents always dress them the same?) and of course, given it's Skywatch Friday, a special mention to your beautiful sunrise.
