where the deer and the antelope play

Posted in Nature, Photography, The Ranch, Wildlife by leahyetter on August 2, 2011

In the freshly cut meadow, the wildlife can’t hide as well.

While driving into the ranch a couple evenings ago I came upon deer, antelope, and turkeys all grazing in the meadow together.

It was a beautiful sight and I noticed a lot of them hanging out near the sprinkler probably to keep cool. We’re watering it for the second cutting for horse hay.

Does and bucks were all together with antelope grazing without a care in the world.

But the mommas were on the lookout and very cautious. They stayed close to the brush for a quick hop to their hiding place if need be.

    Momma deer are the best, they’re so protective of their fawns. A few weeks ago a young whitetail deer jumped over my car (while I was driving) and scratched the roof with his hooves! I love them anyway.

      They are the best! My goodness, that would shake me up big time, glad you are ok. Hope the car is ok too!
