Umm….

Ok... ya... I guess I was done with those.
... I never really liked them much anyway.
So... ok then.

* She likes apples too: http://365project.org/deuces/challenge-me/2013-08-18

* The all-too-common eventual sad fate of many of my flowers. Oh well... life's full of trade-offs :)
ANYTHING for a good photo, right? Including giving up your flowers :)

Darling deer photo---well, it would have been darling except the deer ate your flowers.

@jyokota Haha, sometimes it just happens that way! This young doe has two fawns she's been feeding for several months now so she's gotten pretty bold in her foraging; I'm sure her fawns take quite a bit of her energy!
August 19th, 2013  
Great capture!!!! I know the feeling.
August 19th, 2013  
I'm so glad you share
August 19th, 2013  
nice salad bar ya got there.
August 19th, 2013  
@cameronknowlton Haha, someone sure thinks so!
August 19th, 2013  
Love the way the flowers are hanging out of both sides of her mouth! Perfect capture!
August 19th, 2013  
@luvmynynix Haha, she's not shy about her salads that's for sure!
August 19th, 2013  
nice capture... pity about the flowers tho... :-)

I love deer!
August 19th, 2013  
I worked hard to nurture a pumpkin last year. The seedling lived in my compost the first few months of its life. I saved it, nurtured it, gave it a great place to live. In the blink of an eye, it was ravaged by a member of the neighborhood elk herd. Grrrr. Yes the price we pay. It is fun to watch their huge muzzles drink from the bird bath though.

I love the unique capture and your narrative. Fav!
August 19th, 2013  
Haha...love this. Adorable
August 19th, 2013  
Fabulous focus for this cheeky deer! You obviously don't have deer fences around your property!
August 19th, 2013  
Ha! We have a similar problem. I've gone to planting lots if creeping thyme between the flowers/plants they tend to nosh on...I love the smell of thyme, the deer apparently don't feel the same about this culinary herb and tend to avoid those areas. Great capture!
August 20th, 2013  
It was probably worth it for this photo. At least you saw him doing it!
August 20th, 2013  
Great shot!
August 20th, 2013  
But she has such beautiful doe-eyes!
August 20th, 2013  
Wow! What a special shot of the darling thief! Beautiful!
August 20th, 2013  
Haha! You caught her in the act! Great capture!
August 20th, 2013  
She looks so utterly innocent! Fabulous capture, Aaron! :)
August 20th, 2013  
busted! (i love how he's got that "deer in the headlights" look ;p)
August 20th, 2013  
Cool shot but I think he prefers organic :)
August 20th, 2013  
LOL How could you deny that face anyway! Great capture!!
August 20th, 2013  
Bold is right. Beautiful capture, though. There was a large toe print in my garden this morning too!
August 20th, 2013  
Her ribs are showing a bit, so I think she needs a bit of a snack
August 20th, 2013  
ha. If it makes you feel any better, all of my flowers have suffered the same fate. And my tomatoes, and my peppers....
August 20th, 2013  
Oh gosh -- did you actually catch him in the act?
August 20th, 2013  
@taffy Haha, I sure did; just off my front deck! I have another of her stealing an apple from my tree I might post tomorrow if it turns out okay. :)
August 20th, 2013  
@grizzlysghost Amazing nerve!! And great sense to at least capture it for all of us!
August 20th, 2013  
Eh, what the heck -- those pansies won't be around much longer, anyway. I love the way they're hanging out of her mouth. Gosh - I can even see her eyelashes! Beautiful - totally worth the sacrifice.
August 20th, 2013  
Well worth it for this shot!
August 20th, 2013  
I know what you mean...we just plant natives that deer aren't much interested in!
August 20th, 2013  
hahaha -- I love this shot!
August 20th, 2013  
Great shot! Like the foliage still in her mouth! How could you refuse her anyway!
August 20th, 2013  
Wow great shot, Wonderful capture
August 20th, 2013  
Sue
Oh. how could you refuse that face! Love the shot.
August 20th, 2013  
Haha what did he just stroll into your bkyd to graze?
August 20th, 2013  
She looks sort of guilty. Great catch. We live in town with houses all around us, but still have occasional deer problems. I spray our flowers with deer repellant that I understand includes coyote urine (how do they collect it?). One hard winter the mule deer even ate a juniper in our back yard, and they had to be desparate to do that.
August 20th, 2013  
@michaelelliott She is a local and spends a lot of time on my property with her two fawns :) This is the closest I've seen her get to the house though; they must be pretty tasty flowers!
August 20th, 2013  
Wow she is stunning! My son said "hurry get your bow."
August 20th, 2013  
A great pose,super capture!!
August 20th, 2013  
Oh deer.. ;)
August 20th, 2013  
Love that look: I'm caught, but I don't really care.

lol @aprilmilani I was thinking the same thing.
August 20th, 2013  
Pansies are pretty tasty. Try adding some marigolds next year. They don't like them (and usually won't eat them) and it will slow down their distruction.
August 20th, 2013  
Caught in the act! This is fab. Wonderful capture!
August 20th, 2013  
haha.....caught him mid-chomp! love it!
August 21st, 2013  
Amazing capture! fav
August 21st, 2013  
Fav. Sprung! LOL...
August 21st, 2013  
I'm jealous of her eyelashes...;-)
August 21st, 2013  
A trade off that's definitely worth it! Great.
August 21st, 2013  
Fav - love that "Oops I didn't realise you were home" look
August 21st, 2013  
A Fav. Lovely capture.
August 22nd, 2013  
How awesome! I thought you put them out for her. She seems to recognize you.
August 23rd, 2013  
Jo
Wonderful shot.
August 24th, 2013  
Oh hi. :-) These ARE for me, aren't they?

This beautiful creature is worth losing a few flowers.
