Not sure about your deer, but over here I see a fair number of female moose young and old, actually similar for the deer, but few males and I've never been privileged to have a young male showing the antler starting out. I have a salt lick as you can see. They were moving around so my shutter had to be up a little and the ISO was pushing too high for a decent shot, plush shadows have been lifted.NEAT!
So unicorns do exist! Not quite as advertised......
Ah ha, a confession! CR for the humour. AS long as it's not AI generated!!Thanks for compliments. In the interest of full disclosure I will state that I cloned out the rump of a second deer that was sticking out from behind the tree to the left of this deer.
Nice. I've noticed similar except for the odd aggressive one and for some reason all of mine, at least mature ones are female. I made a cavity for seeds for birds in a stump and they would lick out the sunflower seeds. We are blessed to be in a rural setting!We live in a rural area, so deer and other wildlife are all around us, I can watch them out my window pretty much every day. We give them a little grain out by my surveillance camera, but word spread quickly so that there are a lot of them looking now, but only 4-6 cups of COB, just a taste. They usually take turns getting just a bite each, much better mannered than people.
The female pronghorn is really pretty! I like all the three pictures, but first one steal the show!Thought I'd start a thread for pronghorns and other wild ungulates. We have lots of pronghorns around here (often, but mistakenly, called an antelope). They're generally much easier to take pictures of than deer.
1. Female pronghorn. She was by the side of the road and just stood there nonchalantly while I snapped away.
2. Male and female pronghorns in a farmer's field.
