Nothing Runs Like a Deer(e)

The upper deer was truly fortuitous. I had the camera up to my eye and focused, in the act of taking a photo of some trees. Suddenly there was a crackling in the hedgerow, maybe twenty feet from me. Out popped this little spike buck and off he bounded. I would have never caught the shot if I hadn't already had the camera up in mid-click. Alan says he has been seeing him everywhere the past couple of weeks. Hope he has his syllabus with him and knows the season will be starting soon.

Then I came across this other Deere. It was sitting still while its appendage was greased and prepared for the afternoon.

Soon it too moseyed off, a bit slower than its furry counterpart, taking a couple of my dears along for the ride.

And over in some mud left over from the storm, I found more deer tracks, plus one from a coyote.....but what is that smaller track next to the coyote print?

I don't know. Do you?
