The Curious One

My last post showed fake deer, now I will show you the real thing. We passed these a few days ago.


There were several of them, and they camouflaged well.

But it seems there is always ONE in a herd. The one who does not run when the rest do. The one who is too curious. He slowly walked closer and closer as he looked at us. The others had all bolted.

I don't know about cats, but curiosity WILL kill a deer. Too bad, just look at those eyes. Be afraid, buddy.  Jump away, and don't ever look back.

These are way better than the decorative deer. I hope that last deer doesn't find himself in troube one day because of his curiosity.

Deer are beautiful creatures, but around here they can be a nuisance when you are driving. My husband totaled my last vehicle when he hit a deer.

I sure hope he is safe. There is one in every crowd - even in people crowds. Curiosity killed the cat too!

I think he was just giving you a chance to get a good picture, which you did.

These are such great photos to see. They have a timidity to them but maybe they are just curious and cautions

I really like that last portrait of the deer. Hopefully he will take your advice.

They are beautiful and the curious one is so cute! But I agree, curiosity could kill deer. I hope he stays safe!
