I shot a doe, a fawn, and a 4-point buck!


...and a few other pix besides!



I'm sharing this photo of mama and her fawn on Click It Up A Notch.
The deer pix were shot a few miles from our home. It was a treat to see mama and her fawn. I've actually seen 4 young fawns yesterday and today. This was delightful... so I'm sharing the deer photos at 52 Weeks of Happiness. Stop on my and share things that make YOU happy!

The flower shots were taken at the open house of a gardener's paradise, a place called Plants Delight Nursery. Their nursery is generally not open to the public, but twice a year they have an open house. They have many unusual and beautiful plants, and I snapped some photos of a few of my favorites. If you're unable to get there for their fall open house, ask them to send you a catalog. It's written with a combination of know-how and humor that makes for interesting reading.

  7. BEAUTIFUL PHOTOS! We have an apple orchard in the front of the house, so the deer come every morning and evening to feast. I might get some deer photos, but I won't ever have lovely flowers like that because of my deer. I still enjoy them, even if they eat all my flowers.
    Have a great week!

  12. Wonderful shots. The flowers are very pretty and your photos show such great details of them. The deer shots are the same. They seem to be almost posing for you. The deer we see near our house sure don't do that, they run at the sight of a camera.
