a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

Good Fences

At the north end of our compound is the orchard.  The herd use this as their path through and to green pastures.  During fruit season they linger longer.

Hubby came to get me with my camera to witness the herd.  There were a dozen.  They were very alert and had been frolicking before I arrived.   I first shot through the screen, then through the window glass, then I slowly sneaked outside to get a clear view through a big lens (don't ask me what lens, I'm still learning).
They are moving toward our private road.
A few wandered over the cattle guard.
This one saw me and was sore afraid.
For those not familiar with this type of deer
the white tail "flag" is a warning for the herd.
Easy to see and tells them all DANGER.

If you're wondering what this has to do with fences
at The Run*A*Round Ranch's Good Fences
just take my word for it...
behind all that brush is a fence.

Great photo you have lots of blooms for them to eat! I think your Daffodills are safe they usually don't like them:)

I believe you . . . fun to see "a herd" of deer . . .
We saw twenty plus cross a road when we were in Iowa in a fairly residential area. Stopped traffic as they "flew" by. Hubs corrected me when I said, "look at that fleet of deer!"
(Seemed like a "fleet" to me.)

Many White Tail around here in Michigan . . .

Oh those deer. I wish the buck that visits in the fall would leave off beating up on one particular apple tree at my house, LOL.

I stumbled on to your blog from Alex's blog. So glad I did.

Your a treasure behind that camera girlfriend. What a wonderful capture.

You survive those wicked storms last night. I have to admit...I was sore afraid too. It was bad...X3.

You have a gloriously blessed Easter weekend beautiful Gail. :o)

They are such beautiful, gentle creatures. They need their wits about them every minute though.
