Wildlife Wednesday: Playtime

Monday afternoon, something outside our bedroom window caught my eye.  I grabbed the camera and went out on the deck.

First, I took this still shot.

Then the action began. A group of about five or six deer (I lost count) were romping around in our side yard. I was especially happy to get video of the two of them “boxing”.

I left the sound as recorded, so you can hear the wind from a tropical disturbance off our coast.


Thankfully, my presence during their playtime didn’t bother them in the least. You’d think they were accustomed to seeing me with the camera.

  1. This is great! Thinking they would be frightened of you, if you did NOT have your camera;) The boxing scene is fun and I love the fact that they make a stop at the “water fountain” when needed!

  2. Frisky critters! The wind must make them more playful. I love the water breaks also.

  3. Apparently, your house is the place to eat, play, and do photo shoots! 😉 So cute, when they’re not eating your plants!!

  4. So sweet!! They have really grown up.
