Two deer in our back yard.....
Stood ears alert on guard
If not threatened or rushed...
To leave the scene in fear....
They may grant simple trust
And allow me to come near!

I opted to get as close as I could get which was about 100 feet away while moving slowly toward them. Because they are wild creatures, I have learned not to make sudden moves, sometimes stopping before taking another step and most importantly stay calm! I think these two were born last year.

Best View in Light Box! Thank you!

    What a beautiful sight to see! I love the eye contact, they look young and very healthy, too. A super capture of this delightful duo!

    I dread hunting season too and it seems to go on forever. I hope they make it through the season unscathed, too!!!
