Posing

We were on our way to a friend's house today, and look who was by the side of the road! He was very close, and did not even run. He actually posed for several pictures, then calmly walked away. Most will jump in front of our car to cross the road. We have had two near misses this summer.




He has the beginning of soft, velvety antlers!

“As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, my God.”
Psalm 42

I love that Bible verse and made into a worship song as well... As the deer panteth for the water so my soul longeth after You... You alone are my heart's desire and I long to worship You...

You have captured some great poses of the deer. He is a young handsome deer as shown in the last 2 shots. That is one of my favourite verse! Have a blessed day!

I love the last photo, the full face view. so beautiful. I have never seen a deer in the wild, only in a zoo or animal farm... glad you missed them for your sake and their sake.

Beautiful! A youngster coming of age. And no, he's not too thin, Briony... he's just right. Blessings~ Andrea xoxo

Lots of deer around here. I always drive a little slower at dusk when they seem more active.

What a beautiful dear! I love the velvety antlers. How nice he posed for some pictures :-) We see dear from time to time. The other day, I saw a couple strolling in the area behind our home. I really hope they stay away from the road.

Ginny, was that a baby with the small velvet antlers?

How nice of him to pose for you. I was thinking the same thing as Briony, that he looked a bit thin. But then I usually just see them running out in front of me in the early morning hours.

What a beautiful creature. He almost looks like a statue!

These are wonderful pictures. These guys don't usually wait for a picture to be taken.

Great shots, Ginny!

Isn't he very handsome?!!!

Glad to read those all were near misses....I wouldn't want to have road kill, or YOU TWO injured.
