Nature Notes - Afternoon nap


Visit Michelle at the interesting Nature Notes Thursday to see the world around you.

Outside my office window, I see hawks and vultures, squirrels and raccoons and of course, deer. One warm afternoon this week, when the weak sun was shining for all it's worth, I looked outside and saw four deer. Three were resting.
There are all four deer in the photo below. Can you find them?

Sometimes, no matter who is looking, if you itch, you need to scratch.
In the photo below, you can see detail in her face. My camera doesn't shoot well with the zoom this far out, but I think this time it did a good job.

Wonderful shots of the wildlife in your winter wonderland. It must be hard to be a deer or any animal for that matter in the winter.

How wonderful to have that view!

I did spot all four deer in the one photo...

I love a fellow window watcher. Hey you never know what you might see. Love the deer!

those deer are so sweet looking in the woods. i saw all four albeit i had to look hard for that fourth one. the night before i went to the hospital we drove our cat to a friend's house so they could watch him for us and on the way there we saw three deer in an open field. it was a precious sight with night closing in around them. both times my husband slowed down for me to get a picture (to & from) and my auto zoom had to act out. needless to say i didn't get a picture, sigh. hope all is well.
