Isn't the black edging on her ears lovely?
They were probably just passing through and smelled the block we'd set out a few days earlier. The squirrels had put a dent in it, but there was still plenty left for hungry deer.
They could hear my camera and kept a wary eye on me, but they weren't alarmed enough to pass up the treat.
This buck still had his horns.
This fellow had dropped his already . . .
on both sides.
And this guy . . .
looked a little peeved and uncomfortable.
That had to be a nuisance! It kept him from nibbling at the block, although I think he was able to feed on some bushes along the fence line. A couple hours later, we walked the property line to see if his loose horn had fallen off when he hopped the fence. No such luck.
