This image is one you won’t often see. The deer is a wild whitetail buck who would come into my yard for apples from a wild apple tree I have at the edge of my property He would come that year with about 8 to 10 others….some bucks, some does, and some fawns. This particular deer would always seem to be going into the area where I kept my American Pit Bull Terrier called Powder. Surely she could have gotten him if she wanted to. They were close enough many times. Sometimes Powder would chase him out of the area, but whenever she was in her spot next to the tree, she would just watch him eating the little wild cherries that fell on the ground there. The day I took this shot, Powder was sleeping (in her favorite spot of course) and I saw the buck coming in. So I got the camera ready and he went right up to her and seemed to be smelling her and maybe even gave her a little nudge. I couldn’t believe it. It was like he was telling her to wake up…I’m here. lol It was a great year for me. I totally enjoyed watching these two and even the fawns that would get close to Powder. It was Peace On Earth in my own backyard. I hope you enjoy this image as much as I enjoyed taking it and watching them interact that awesome year.
