Worth A Buck!

Mule Deer
captured by D5 / 180-400VR

Every fall, Sharon and I start prepping our meadow for the next spring. We’ve been doing it for decades and depending on the snow and winter showers, it’s either ok or, wow! This year was wow and in late July we call it the nursery. That’s because all the baby rabbits, squirrels, chipmunks, grouse, quail and other critter make the flowers of the meadow quiver with all their activity in it. We love it. About ten days ago though for the first time, this big Mule Deer buck arrived and quickly the blossoms of our carefully loved meadow began to disappear. After a week of coming out and talking to him, he stood his groun munching long enough to get some glass on him (D5 / 180-400VR). Now we have had does a lot, a couple of yearling bucks, but never a big boy like this so it’s been quite a treat. And the meadow, well I guess it won’t be so wow for long but it’s worth a buck!
