Great photos. Love the deer posing for you..
He was as calm as he could be. Most see you coming and just automatically bolt. Not him. He watched me but, didn’t even attempt to run. If I didn’t know any better, I’d swear he was waiting for me to feed him.

Could be. Some deer are pretty tame around humans. Some like you said bolt at the smallest movement.
Our next door neighbor has a doe with her fawn taking up residence in her back yard…and we are in town…not out in the county. This doe is very skittish. I can barely get close enough for a long camera shot.
I love cows. Yes it’s silly but I always wanted one. Back in the 80s and 90s we would play at the drummers house. Beside him they had cows. You go to the fence and they would let you pet them and follow you if you walk up and down the fence line.
My cow would die of old age.
Yeah. LOL! I’ve always said that, if I met the cow I was supposed to eat, I’d become a total pescatarian. I would enjoy their milk for drinking, butter & cheese. LOL!
A member of my group is on a farm outside of Toronto. He’s raised cows. He talked at great length of his love for them and their behaviors. They can be quite amusing. They love music.
I’m really serious…something about them I really like. I love large animals…like that is a surprise…but I would take one…but never on a sandwich.
I’m glad you have that group to help center you…. Cows love music? Maybe that is the reason they liked me lol
Big dogs. Big cows. I get it. LOL! You like horses? I made a friend when I was going to photograph the metal rooster. I had to pass a Painted horse and a little Shetland (I THINK it was a Shetland). They were certainly used to being hand fed. I felt bad that I didn’t have any treats. Sweet babies.
Dude. Watch these (links won’t show up on the phone, tho…):
I love horses but I am scared of them…no not scared but just respectful of them.
No lie…guess my favorite horse? Come on…
I’m watching them now
Clydesdale…if that is the way you spell it. I love how they walk…and again they are huge…
Oh, yeah…Shires, Drafts, Andalusians & Clydesdales are gorgeous. My former Texan supervisor had Morgans.
Wow…they are great.
When I was 17-18…I told you I know…I would feed race horses…every horse had a different mixture…it was on Tanya Tucker’s old farm owned by a judge at the time…
I’m about to hit the old “hay”…ha ha horses…hay get it?
Yea I am sleepy and tired lol…you have a good night Vic.
I don’t recall the racehorse feeding but, that is damn cool. That would explain your “healthy respect.” Plus, I have trouble remembering what I ate yesterday. 🙄
Wonder what happened to Tanya…
I hit the “hay”…😆…just before you did. I was falling out…😵😴☺
It was really cool learning about horses at that time.
She had sold it a few years before I worked there.
Dam you…now I REALLY want a cow…that is awesome…I like the first one a lot…all of those cows coming over the ridge!
There are plenty of videos of folks playing for cows…and cows mooing and enjoying it. LOL!
Ken asked me what I was giggling about. I said “I’m watching cows enjoy a trombone.” Heh.
Awesome animal friends! Love that adorable young buck with velvet still on his antlers. 🙂
He was so cute and so curious. I kept walking and he went back to eating. Not once did he try to take off.
Lovely photos! The deer coming so close is amazing. 🙂
I was overjoyed that he stood still for me. He’s too cute.
I love the cows, too, btw. 🙂
They were precious. They mooed at me a bit and the little one walked over. Ever seen videos of cows enjoying music?
No, I haven’t. Is this something I should find?
These are pretty good. They tickle me:
Excellent Photos! As Always. Love that buck…he looks like WHAT!?!?!
Thanks, Linda. And, that is exactly what he looks like he is thinking.
