Beautiful neighbors.............

One of the joys of living just inside the city limits is that we're surrounded by wildlife.  Wild turkeys, White Tail and Mule deer, rabbits, and who knows what that roam the alley in the night time.  I know there are raccoons, skunks, they've killed mountain lions, and occasionally even bears are around here.  Some kind of bother me, when I take Rascal out after dark I try to keep a sharp eye on him.  But mostly I just love the creatures who also make our neighborhood their home.

This White Tail doe and her two fawns were right across the alley today.  She didn't seem worried and even allowed me to photograph her and her little family.

What a joy these animals are.                                    Diane

As much as I am perturbed by the way the deer eat their way through my garden, I am still thrilled to come upon them on my walks. This mama looks like she's inviting you to photograph her babies.

They are so beautiful. It angers me when people complain about wildlife in their neighborhoods when clearly it is man that keeps encroaching on their natural habitat. Love your turkey header. :)

Knowing how hard it is for me to get good deer shots,this picture amazes me.
