Picture of the week (Deer in hiding)

Filed under: Outdoors,Picture of the week — Tags: , — Marcus @ 2:00 am

Remember the post on the wild turkeys I did awhile back?  I got this picture the same day at the Chagrin River Park.  I call that park my own personal petting zoo.  I liked this picture because at first glance you don’t always notice there is a deer there watching you.  Its amazing how you can walk through the woods and not notice any wildlife, but if you walk slow and really watch your surroundings, they are always there.  Its not always that they are hiding in the bushes either, you just have to slow down enough to notice where they are.

  1. Another awesome picture, these animals are probably getting used to seeing you out walking early in the morning.
    Keep trekking and sharing your pictures and experiences, I love it.

  2. Glad you enjoyed the picture! Last fall I told Meagan I was a bit worried about rutting season here, the deer are already bold, I was afraid that they may stop me in the middle of the path, roll over, and demand that I rub their bellies before they will let me pass 🙂

    It is cool seeing wildlife up so close, however, it really makes me wonder about all the really awesome animal pictures I see in magazines and such, are the people taking those spending hours tracking or waiting for an animal to photograph? Or are they just going to city parks and taking pictures like I am? From the picture you can’t tell a difference, and I can take pictures like this any day I want to out here.

    When I was back at the farm a couple weeks ago, I spent 3 days outdoors, and did a fair amount of skiing through the woods, I only saw one deer, and I only saw its tail, from about 100 feet away. That is what I know to be “real” deer.
