new gardner
« on: June 29, 2005, 08:11:48 PM »
Looked out the window the other day at lunch time and saw that I had acquired a helper to keep the shrubs trimmed down. That bush is only a foot and a half from the window and I was about a foot from the other side taking his picture.

Don't know what is wrong with these deer. They must think they are city deer and can just walk up to anybody's house and have lunch. I live in farm country and deer are supposed to have better manners out here. I would like  to see him try that archery season ( or gun season for that matter ). I noticed that something had nipped back some of my potted seedlings and now I am sure who it was. The deer have been wandering around the house quite a bit the last month or so. Must be hanging near the lake to keep cool I guess. Notice the flies on his head.

You know sprucebunny I did not even notice that. You are right, it does look like camoflage. Actually I believe it is a shadow from the branches of my hazel nut trees. They have quite a few branches that most likely would have been casting shadows on the deer at that time of day. You have a sharp eye.

That is a neat picture. It is not often you can get so close to a young buck like that.

Unless of course you just shot him. :o

  This one almost ended up under the truck .
I Had to do an emergency stop for this little guy the other day . Was going to saw up at my uncles and he was laying on the road getting a tan . Of course he had to lie down just beyawn a rise on the road saw him at the last minute  :o  I stopped and picked him up and put him the other side of the fence , his mama was there and did not like the fact that I was messing with her youngone .  :)

Good picture's isawlogs

Glad you didn't run over the little critter  8)   I'm always afraid mowing hay I'll
get one of them . Last year I mow a Hen Turkey that was sitting in a middle of
a Hay field sitting on a nest of eggs,  That Disc. Mow sure did a number on her
Feather every where  ::)  I really hated that, But she was just hiding too good
