Gotta buck to spare?...


I am sooooo NOT a wildlife photographer, of ANY sort.  Unless you consider street photography "wildlife" (which just might be a valid point at times).  I'm not even sure I LIKE the concept of "wildlife".  At least not up close and personal. In the spirit of full disclosure I should admit that I consider spiders, mice, and stink bugs wildlife.   Along with all those bigger species of wildlife thangs.  Like BIG spiders, BIG mice and BIG stinkbugs.  I try to avoid all these thangs when possible.  After all, ignorance is bliss...for me.  Not to mention less stressful...for me.  Ipso facto...the Better-Half too.



"Gotta Buck?"
Ambler, Pennsylvania


But despite my self-imposed ignorance,  I DO know that this is not only a deer...but a buck (and not the kind I like to spend).  And I DO know he is a fairly good size.  And I DO know he wanted his photo taken.  Why else would he be posing right out my back door? Well, that AND the fact he probably knows the only kind of "shooting" going on around here is by me.  With my camera.   

Say cheeeeese.  Or apple.  Or salt-lick? 







Here's where I "link up" today.


Tuesday's Song-ography title is "Try" by Colbie Callait.  Come back and link up!

  1. Gorgeous click. We love deers, very often we meet them on our road trips through forests. They are darn cute, aren't they?

  3. Ha! Ha! Anything that would make me scream is a wildlife for me, too. But that wildlife that visited you in your backyard is sure is adorable; the kind I don't mind sighting. That's a really lovely capture. It looks like it's really posing for you.

  14. We have so many deer that claim the golf course as a romping ground that it is not uncommon to drive by 15-20 deer some evenings, some standing right beside the road starring you down, daring you to make a move in their direction.

  15. he felt your energy and knew he wasn't in danger. :) you can count his age by how many prongs per antler so he's a pretty young buck.
