White-Tailed Deer - Buck - Odocoileus virginianus by 

I’d guess everyone knows the white-tailed deer on sight. This guy wandered through our woods so I grabbed the camera and took a picture through the window. Not much of a rack (antlers) but healthy and hungry:>)

This picture was taken November 25, 2012, in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, USA, and is dedicated to all the wildlife management people who work so hard at preserving our wild animals!

I love nature, science, poetry, prose, art, music – you name it! Now that I’m retired, time is mine to spend as I wish (pretty much), and I wish to take pictures of our natural world.

Bringing the outdoors in for others to see, especially those who may not get the opportunity to wander next to a pond, fish at the beach, or tramp in the woods, is a pleasure. I hope to build a window to the wonders of nature that fill our everyday lives.

    He’s gorgeous and he came so close. I have only seen 1 buck in my yard so far and I didn’t get any pics of him.

  • They’re in rut, of course, so the does don’t come around as much – give it a couple weeks when the bucks aren’t so randy! Bet you get a chance to see them together as they “yard up” for winter:>)

    Great capture, love the detail and monochrome!

  • Thank you for the wonderful comment and the fave, Glenn. Before the rut we saw four buck traveling together – what a sight! Because they are so well camouflaged, I chose the black and white to make the details more apparent.
