Sweet Blinks

Posted in Photography, Wildlife by leahyetter on January 24, 2011

Even with the large amount of cattle grazing the meadows (and in our front yard I might add), the deer still have plenty to chew on.

Blink of Delight

And they love it. Just look at the sweet delight on this yearlings face while chewing his cud.

I Surprised Her

I was spotted by one but Blinkie continued with his meal.

Blinking Buck

It is no different for the bucks, they love passing through and grabbing a bite too.

The deer seek refuge here from the mountain lions in the hills. They feel safe and so far we haven’t had problems with them hanging around. BUT, I haven’t started my garden and I have a feeling I will be investing in a lot of netting and have a dog housed near the veggies.

    Lovely to see! We’re buried under a few feet of snow here. It’s lovely to see the grass in your pictures. The deer are beautiful.
