Oh, Deer, What Big Ears You Have!


Don’t bother. They’re too far away.

But the camera will bring them in.

Not worth it.

We’ll see.

dscn6735Okay, I had to admit they were too far away for good clear pictures, but the alternative was no pictures at all.

The mule deer buck in the photo below is saying to his lady friend, “Aw, come on. Don’t be like that! … All right, I’m sorry.”dscn6738“Did you hear that?”

“It’s nothing. Just an old lady with a camera.”dscn6742How many deer do you see? I see two. One normal one and another with two bums.dscn6745Here’s a pretty one, getting ready to leave.dscn6750Sheย turns to say one last goodbye to me, flaps her mule-like ears and is gone.dscn6752

  2. I like the deer with two backsides. It reminded me of a very similar photograph my father took when I was a boy. It appeared to show a lamb with two heads.

  4. Those are in nice condition going into winter! When I moved back to Montana in 1993, mule deer were very low in numbers here in the northwest and it was a big concern. Now they are plentiful. Beautiful animals!

  5. Beautiful creatures! I never realized how big their ears were. So glad to hear their numbers are increasing. Thanks for taking the risk and getting some great photos to share with us.

  6. Reminds me of my seven-legged elk in Big Creek in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The camera was too smart for its own good. Check her out here: http://bigcreekjournal.blogspot.com/2015/06/june-15-2015-return-of-elk.html

  7. Haha. Two bums. Them’s some pretty big deer. ๐Ÿ˜‰ They look like they’re eatin’ good. That zoom lens works great. You did a great job of keeping it steady.

  11. Anneli, your photographs are great and we clearly can see their sweet eyes and ears! I love the fact the two deer standing next to each other created a twin set of bums. You have such a fun outlook and great sense of humor in these deer comments. ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. Not that hard really. Just have to keep my eyes open. Wish the photos were better but these deer were so far away and the camera did the best it could.
