Buck Portrait



Exploring a new back road produced this buck who was kind enough to stay put as I backed up with my car to get the shots. He's a cute fella, but not yet wise enough to know that I am a potential threat. He stood there eating the whole time with out much care other than chewing on some tasty weeds. I hope he finds a mentor soon!

Lucky you to have him pose so nicely for you, what a great shot of him giving you raspberries! I sure hope the instinct to hide kicks in soon for him.

I'm holding my breath for the big buck close ups you'll be getting in another couple of months....GREEN with envy ;-)

Now that is a wonderful shot, just love the velvet rack..and I always fall for those eyes and lashes!!
Very nice capture..he was probably just as curious about you and as you were with him..oh those lazy hazy days of summer.
Neat!!

Ok Hannibal...how much of what did you pay him with to get that shot!!

Being the expert of ticks...I think that is one.
