As you know, I have been obsessed with photographing
I posted the link to my
Dear Deer blog
I was thrilled when my friend Sharyl
commented on my wall that
60 to 100 deer gather in the evening in a field near her house.
Once I heard about her herd,
I hurried over!
I took the above photo from the street.
Can you see them itty-bitty way in the heck out there?
I parked by the water tower that is also in this field.
The deer scattered into the woods the moment I pulled in.
I crept around the fence and planted my body
between two trees...
in the frigid wind.
The field was empty and I was
freezing my rump off between two dang trees.
(Hubby says my dear rear is still very much there!)
WHERE are the deer????
But the cloudy sunset was pretty.
one by one...
Two by two...
They trotted from the woods.
Even though they stared right at me,
they must have figured I was too frozen
to be dangerous.
They slowly moved closer and closer to my
I still had to use my telephoto lens.
What a treat to be so close to nature.
Only 16 came out to play.
I don't know what spooked them,
And fled to the back of the field again.
Last night, Sharyl called me about 6pm to say
30 deer were in the field.
It was already too dark, so I drove over
and simply stared in awe.
I'm thinking of sticking a deer lick close
to my tree to attract them closer.
I MUST try this again so I can
photograph 60 deer!
Do deer attack frozen females?????
