Deer On The Side Of The Road

You wanna know something I really like? Small pictures in my blog posts before some smart person goes and clicks on them to see the bigger versions. My pictures today benefit greatly from this concept.

I took several pictures of this deer through my windshield as I was driving towards it on a country road. It looks like I was very close to the deer, but I was actually very far away. The deer only looked like a speck. I had to use the maximum zoom through a dirty windshield while in motion to get these pictures.

I wouldn't have even bothered, but I see so many deer and I get so few pictures. And the truck was moving very slowly at the time. That's why the deer stopped to look at me. It was wondering what I was doing driving so slowly. You can do that on a forgotten dirt road.

Most of the deer I see are near the busy highway right before it gets dark. That means there's no way to get any pictures. This was very different so I thought it was a rare chance to show everyone that there is indeed deer around here. Now I have absolute proof. Ha! I'll talk to you later.


  1. I think I lived in Florida 15 years before I saw a deer here.

  2. Great pictures under those conditions, Ratty.

  3. There have been a lot of deer around here, too. They've had babies with them.

  4. That's cool that you got some deer photos - they are hard to capture.

  5. It us very weird to see a slow touch around.
    The deer thought.
    The one inside the truth must be eccentric.

  6. When we lived at the Lake here in Oregon, we used to see deer every time we walked or drove....I miss them now.
