I put a little table out in my yard with a cloth and a basket with apples and carrots in it to see what the curious deer in my yard would do about it. LOL Well they really are curious!! I just took this today (4-17-09). So far they didn’t actually eat any, but I bet when I check in the morning, they are gone!

    Ginny, what a great experiment, great image! Dee

  • LOL Thanks Dee. It was fun to watch them try to see what was in the basket. They let me stay about 20 feet from them.

    Hi Ginny, well gee, you put the apples and carrots out in a neat wicker basket so of course the little fawn figures it’s a treat for him. LoL My old late horse Stretch would have eaten everything inluding the basket. LOL Did he ever eat anything from the basket? Love the shot and the bright sun lighting in it. Very nice. Ed

  • LOL I like your horse Ed! hahaha No the deer never did eat anything from the basket…to my surprize. I was sure everything would have been gone in the morning…but it was all still there… so I put all the goodies on the grass. :)) After that…it was gone. lol

    After looking at your photo more carefully, that deer might be a doe. Again, great shot. Love it. Ed

  • I think you’re right Ed. I’m pretty sure this is the doe I call Grace. She had the twin little bucks last year. if I’m not mistaken…she is looking a little plump again. I’m hoping she has a new one or two little fawns in there. :))

    Hi Ginny, perhaps the carrots and apples are too large for a deer to handle. If you try cutting them into smaller pieces they might take them. It may also be that they are really polite deer and don’t want you to think they are theives. LOL Sure hope you get some baby deer as they would make great subjects to photograph. Ed

  • Hi Ed! I cut the apples up into pieces every day for the deer. :)) And carrots too….when they get them. lol You are so funny. I have put small whole apples on the table before…as a practice for the basket shot. And they took them! Of course when I wasn’t looking. lol I wanted to see if I could get a sort of Easter looking shot with a deer for a possible calendar idea I have….so that was the reason for the whole apples. I did manage to get a few cute shots…even though I didn’t get one with the deer actually grabbing the apple or carrot when I was looking. lol They like to sneak them at night. lol Thanks for the comments. I always love to hear yours. You always make me smile. :))
