    This guy and his mother have been comming to my yard from the start. But this time he was in the yard by his self. I was walking around the yard with him, taking these pics. he was walking to me. note the flash reflextion in his eyes. He never spook, I got within 11 feet, had to back zoom all the away off.

    His mother an brother or sister were back today, mom warn them to run.

    Will post a few more pics, when I get time.

    That's wonderful, thank you for sharing! We have deer here, but all I ever see is the white flags taking off. I have no problem with hunting, but our neighbors are a little too gun happy and have terrified anything that moves!

    They have a bad habit of drinking and gunning. Not a good way to hunt.

    I have strict orders that My DH and kids are NOT allowed to shoot a deer less than a year old (or two if I could help it).

    rodriguez,, how can you think that after looking into those big, brown eyes?? [​IMG]

    Those are great pictures. We had a couple orphans that found each other last summer. They hung out in our yard a lot. We couldn't ever get that close though.
