Through My Window Thursday

This big guy was the highlight I saw through my window this week. You can see he wandered in close to the birdbath under the oak tree. I was surprised to see him. He probably shouldn't make himself too known to too many. Why?
He's liable to be some hunter's trophy prize!
( An eight pointer!)

What a handsome boy he is. I thought it was interesting in the first picture that the branches behind the bird bath kind of look like an extra set of antlers. Deer are such lovely animals. There's just something wonderful about seeing them - even just in pictures.

He is a beauty! I think I could set and just look out your windows and be perfectly happy for hours on end.

Run and hide Bucky! Hunting season is right around the corner. What a great photo Carletta, every time I see a buck I can't seem to get a good clear photo.

Beautiful. He didn't grow those antlers without being savvy and cautious. He may just sit hunting season out on your front porch.

With a view like that, that window is gold!

The spider is a stunner too.

Gorgeous! Great shots. I know a couple of hunters who would love this boy :)

Beautiful shot out your window!
Wish I had more of that around here. I probably do, I'm just never here to enjoy it.

Carletta: Very nicely captured, even though he is an 8 pointer he is a youngster with many more good years. Let's hope he is a sneaky buck.

He does seem a bit bold and I hope he's really smarter than to make himself too well known. Maybe he just trusts you...can feel good vibes in your yard. ;-)

He sure is a beauty! How wonderful that you are able to get such a close up view!!

Finding those 7th & 8th points was a bit tricky!!! He is beautiful... I hope he DOES keep himself well hidden so that you can continue to enjoy him for a long time!

I have some interesting wild-life on my blog today - but I had to go a bit further than my window to find them! :)

He's beautiful! I'm still waiting to see a deer out my window. With my loud-mouth dogs, I doubt it will happen any time soon.

Oh I hope not! He's far too beautiful to end up being shot.
Wonderful photos.

He is indeed a nice buck. It looks as though your lawn is turning out to be a whitetail deer hot spot. I look forward to seeing more good photos!
