HI from the buck

My friend in Ouray has an apple tree, and deer like to come to his backyard to eat rotten apples. It is quiet amazing to watch them from so close.

He looks a bit startled...

...but he's such a handsome creature!

Thanks Eric, he did not like the sound of my camera.

That's a nice looking Muley.

Looks like you snapped the pic just as his 'startle response' was kicking in.
Edit: I just noticed Eric posted the same thing!
Sorry, Eric.

He forgot all about me as soon as another apple fell down from the tree...
thanks.

Liba, my folks neighbors have lots of apple trees and you wouldn't believe how high even a small mule deer doe can reach to grab apples out of the trees-I mean, they get up on their hind legs and balance while ripping apples off the branches.
Pretty cool.

I know Tim - I watch it too.
Pretty amazing for someone from Europe, so many deer around here.
Thanks

There once was a deer..

By the woodpile, so near.
Eating apples right off the tree,

Paradise is when you get them 4 free.

I dream of Reindeer, flying high..
Riding the wind as they go strolling by.

The jolly old man in the Red suit agrees,
Eating apples keeps you free from disease.

Re: There once was a deer..

Thanks, but actually..

I love bananas more than I love apples!
