Guess who I saw the very next morning on my way to work on my bike

but about 1 mile from where I was before?

Uh, r u talkin' 2 me? I don't think it was the same deer.

First, I just wanna say, HOW COOL!
You were just riding along and saw these deer?? Very cool.

Secondly, I'm not conniseur of deer, but in my opinion, the deer in the first photo appears a little more gaunt than the one in the second photo. I could be wrong--it's happened once or twice (today!) LOL

Third, what a great idea--to take your camera with you on your bike ride. I've forgotten mine in my purse or car before and those unexpected shots are some of the best! Great idea!

Have an awesome weekend!

Teena said...

Very cool!

Mine's up :)

YellowRose said...

I don't believe it's the same deer the second deer is larger.

But they both are beautiful creatures! I love coming across deer. You are so lucky to come across two in two days and with a camera!!

Happy Saturday!

Viamarie said...

Good you didn't find it difficult to capture this pose. Great work!

Cheers to another weekend!

TNChick said...

I bet it was the same one and you got some great shots ... so pretty.

PresentStorm said...

I love deer... Such beautiful animals...

I am looking at the first one though and I swear it looks as if it has a long mustache..lol

michele said...

They look similar to me. Great shots.

guppyman said...

The eyes are different....

not the same deer at all....

Mandy said...

I don't think I can tell, unless I was there. One is closer to the camera than the other..

Anyway, great pics, happy Saturday!

Mandy

Suzy said...

Nothin' like seeing a deer out in the wild, is there?

I think they are different deers... =o)

Great picture!

Tricia said...

Great shots! I enjoy seeing deer, I'm usually the first to spot one (or many together!). It's too hard to tell if they are the same deer or not .. different angles and lighting make one look a bit bigger but who knows.

My photos are up on odd planet and tricia's musings now.

Dani said...

Great photos!

Have a wonderful weekend. Take care. Dani

Melli said...

Beautiful photos! We have deer wander right through our yard every day -- but I can never get pictures of them! I need a better camera! (bigger lens)

Maribeth said...

I love deer, but not in my yard as they devour fruit trees! I would say the chances are it's not as the second deer looks younger than the first.

My sister lives in the mountains of Colorado and she has deer coming up on her deck! Of course, she feeds 'em. That might explain that, huh?

Beautiful shots.

My S P Hunt is posted.

Denny Shane said...

Of course it's the same deer. How many deers do you think there are that look that cute?

Lazy Daisy said...

Lovely picture. We have deer in our area too. They are lovely creatures. My pets are up.

Deb said...

I see a lot of deer on my daily commute, too. I love deer...I'm like a kid at Christmas every time I see one even though they're a pretty common sight around here :))

Great meerkat shot! I love those meerkats.

My PH is up, too. Come check out my crew of critters :)

FRIDAY'S CHILD said...

Don't get me wrong. I do like deers but I like the last photo. I like how it was captured.
My Photo Hunt is up too.

ZootsMom said...

Those are great pictures. I have no idea if its the same deer but if not, they're both beautiful!!!

Carmen said...

Good way to end a bike ride. :) And thanks for the bonus pic - is that one of the Merkat Manor merkats? ;)

Karla said...

Oh! My mouth dropped open at those pictures! They are such beautiful creatures! A friend & I were walking in the woods several years ago. I had my 35mm looking for nature shots. My friend spotted a deer laying in the cool shade & when we both took off our shades (stupid mistake) & the deer saw our eyes, they jumped up & BOLTED at once! It was like thunder! There were about 8 of them. I focused my camera in on the spot where they were & it was about 50 feet away. It was awesome!
Love the meerkat too. Our little one loves Meerkat Manor on Animal Planet. :)
Thanks for coming by to check out my photos! :)

Marti said...

Wow, that's a great pic. I love seeing the beauty of nature. Yes, I plan to play every Saturday. Love the idea! Thanks for visiting.

Karen said...

they are lucky shots- they never stand still for long, do they? have a great saturday!

Mitey Mite said...

Those are wonderful shots -- how great to be in the right place at the right time and with your camera!

Expat Traveler said...

these are just ever too cute! The deer look the same but who could know without some sort of tag or tracking...

That's such a treat. And it's wonderful you ride so much. thanks for the visit.

Just Expressing Myself said...

Ohmigosh that last one is amazing.
It ought to be published!
I've got mine up.
Have a great weekend,
Frances

Dawn said...

What cool pictures. I love that you have your camera with you coming home from work. I keep saying I'm going to start taking my camera with me, but I always forget.

I love deer so I think these are cool!

Irish Church Lady :) said...

Carmen - I took the meerkat shot at Tampa Zoo last year. I do watch Meerkat Manor from time to time as I enjoyed watching them for quite awhile at the zoo too!

Thanks everyone for your comments. Glad you're liking the bonus Meerkat shot. Dawn ~ I'm gonna add my rooster one for you too!

Butterfly Kisses said...

When I used to live in Connecticut, we'd have deer come into our backyard all of the time. It was so neat. All I get now in my yard are bunnies and squirrels. What great pictures you posted.

Jenny said...

Maybe they were twins and they were doing the twin-trick of trying to convince you that they were the same one?

Gabrielle said...

doe a deer, a female deer :)

thanks for visiting me today!

Karen said...

Wow, lucky shots of those deer! Love meerkats, and that rooster is very colourful, too.

Have a great weekend. My photo is up.

Denise said...

Great shots! I love the bonuses!

Pam said...

Girlll!!
Beautiful White Tail. Amazing. What faces. Did you know deer are cousins to goats?

Meerkats make me laugh. One of our cats sits up like a meerkat and her front paws are just like theirs.

Pretty Irish chickens.

Pam

~Jennifer said...

What beautiful pictures! You captured the deer so well. Amazing!

Deb said...

Neat deer pics! No matter how many I see, it's always a thrill to spot another one in our field or driveway. I like taking my camera with me everywhere, too! :)

eph2810 said...

How very cool deer pictures. I enjoy them. There are just not many around in the desert. We would have to drive up north to see them. Thank you for sharing.

eija said...

oh, that deer (or those two!) was a brave one, to stay long enough for you to stop your bike and grab the camera! And good pictures you got, too.

Thanks for visiting me :)

Fleur De Lisa said...

How cool that you bring your camera along with you on a bike ride. You're really thinking! They look a bit different to me, but I'm no expert. :-)

I've been really surprised to see deer many times in Indianapolis too.

Great Photo Hunt!

Loni said...

These are really neat pictures. I love the deer pictures - so beautiful. We see deer here quite a bit. My son . . . now he'd say those are probably too small for a-huntin! :)

Great group of pics. Thanks for visiting mine!

Janet (fondofsnape@gmail.com) said...

It could be the same deer...stalking you...hmmm...

;-)

Thanks for visiting!

Connie and Rob said...

You just did a wonderful job on your photos. You really are good at having that camera ready at a moments notice.

Take care,
Connie

My photo is up

Barbara said...

Quite an eclectic set of animals. Those colorful Irish chickens are my fave.

cdorsey said...

Beautiful pics.

ilona said...

Wonderful photos! I don't know which I like the best: the deer closeup is amazin, but the meercat is so cute... and I have always been partial to chickens.

Reverberate58 said...

Wonderful photos all of them. I especially love the little sitting praire dog! Cute!
Thanks for stopping by my on Saturday! I hope you have a magnificent Monday!

Pat said...

Great assortment of photos. I love the colorful chickens!!!
