Here's Looking At You, Deer

My contribution to Eileeninmd's Saturday's Critters #82. I saw this big buck along the Washington and Old Dominion Trail on Wednesday.

When he got up to leave...

This is my best picture of a Snowberry Clearwing yet. The moth stopped hovering and parked on a leaf for a bit. It's my contribution to Weekend Butterfly #05 at Andyslens.

Here's Amelia!

First, your last photo trumps all, what a sweet loving moment, of course the others are awesome too, and that deer, very cool! Critter packed awesomeness!

Beautiful deer! And the moth .. I have a lot to learn about them, didn't know they could be that lovely. And it wouldn't be your critter post without your sweet pup!

Rajesh said...

Wonderful shots of the deer.

The Snowberry Clearwing is just a cracker of a picture. I guess this is a hummingbird moth? it also looks like a bee - I wonder why the species developed this way?

Nancy Chan said...

Great deer and dog photos. I like the tail under the door, its cute!

carolann said...

Handsome bucks and the dogs are sweet.

Dee said...

Great pics. Every time I try to get a good picture of a deer, it runs away before I'm able to... lol. I hope you're enjoying the weekend... :)

Hannah said...

That's a startling surprise, 2 bucks instead of one! I would love to see the Snowberry Clearwing in action, they are fascinating moths. The dog tail under the door is so funny, it seems like a vulnerable situation.

Beautiful deer....cute Amelia...and sweet poochies.

Linda Kay said...

That's a perfect rack on the deer. Beautiful. And the kitty paw under the door is priceless.

Good shots of the deer - and the lovely moth.
Amelia's tail - so cute! Were you able to resist the temptation to pull it just a little (gently, of course)?

Marie C said...

Gorgeous bucks! And the clearwing is so great. Plus, I always love those two beautiful dogs!

Lovely captures of critters outside the home and the ones inside.
The Wolfhounds look so worn out - too much playing, eh? :)
Have a Wonderful Day!
Peace :)

Rambling Woods said...

Hi..I will get Nature Notes up as soon as I finish it... I can't use the usual link because Wordpress does not allow java script as a safety thing so I use the Mr. Linky that is text based. Always at the end of every NN post....
