2 Deer with Antlers Visit My Cottage


Luckily my big Nikon with the telephoto lens was on the coffee table when I spotted these two deer near my cottage at dusk. I sneaked outside and they froze and posed very nicely for me. They are beauties, aren't they? The buck to the rear has a bigger rack. Now, back to the Olympics. See you tomorrow.

Very regal.
I have the Olympics on in the background here. Mr. H and the kids are alternately cheering and groaning. Think they are watching beach volleyball. Apparently it is very exciting. ;-)
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

How exciting to see deer near your cottage! Deer are such beautiful creatures and so graceful when they move.

Nice that they were so willing to pose.
