Bucky and Button - The Yard Visitors



October 25, 2008

Last Saturday as I passed the bay window in my dining room this was what I saw! There was Bucky getting ready to head back into the woods and Button sniffing around the back door!

What a wonderful surprise. I'm very glad that you had your camera handy. :D

Thank you for visiting me at my blog. :D

aaaaw is that cute ! I never have such a visitor and I think I haven't seen one in a wood since my childhood !

Gmj said...

Wow, it hunting season here, and the deer know it, they hide. You are truly blessed to have visitors like these. They look very healthy.

Great pictures, Carletta! I don't usually get to see the deer here. They only come out at night. The Captain sees them occasionally. As a matter of fact, he came in late a couple of weeks ago and he said there was a whole herd of them along the driveway.
Sure wish I could have seen them!

What a beautiful pair - the stag is magnificent!

In Crystal we had deer all the time. We hated them because they ate the flowers.

Willard said...

That's a nice buck. I'm glad you were able to photograph him. Some of the larger ones have started to show up here since the rut has started.

We were also at Shenandoah National Park on Thursday and saw several large bucks which I hope to post in the future.

I also liked your skywatch photos, especially the shot of the moon.

Lilli & Nevada said...

NOthing nicer than a deer as long as it don't eat all the flowers

magiceye said...

wonderful visitors!
well captured too!

Raven said...

Wow! They are so beautiful. I envy you these visitors. Beautiful photos. I thought I saw a deer in silhouette on the highway side of my back fence a few months ago but I wasn't fast enough with my camera and I haven't seen her since. Probably just as well... not a smart place for a deer to hang out.

I love the names you gave these deer! And I love "looking" out your window with you and "seeing" them!

On Friday as I left for work, there was a deer in our yard by the mailbox. As I rounded the next corner, there were 4 crows and 3 squirrels in the street. Of course, I didn't have my camera.

Aileni said...

Beautiful creatures - and they feed themselves. As long as they don't eat the trees.
