CAMERA CRITTERS



I found these White-tailed deer munching on grass along Skyline Drive in Virginia.  You can see that the one on the left in the photo below is wearing a collar and a tag.  They are still wearing their winter coat as they sure do blend into the background.  I was surprised to see them as it was the wrong time of the day for viewing wildlife, but what a happy gift to end our drive on.  Shortly afterwards we reached the exit and were heading home.

  6. I was going to say how intriguing about the collar and tag, but I see in a comment its likely to be a conservation study.
    What gorgeous creatures! Your lovely photos reminded me of why I miss the southern parts of Oz! No deer roaming about the tropics I'm afraid :(
