Does

Got some nice pics of does last week. Most of the does in my area group up in groups of anywhere from four to ten or more does this time of year. The first group is from the mountain pond set and the last four from the new set next to the sanctuary woodlot. Oh, did I mention the raccoons have also found my new set?? As you can see the deer don't seem to be too pleased with that.

A couple of you ask about seeing the bindery line I'm working in the last post. I'd love to but that is a big company no, no. The company I work for is notorious for keeping our trade secrets secret.

that 3rd picture is great! and raccoons always make me laugh, but the doe vs. coon pic is even better! :)

(i guess we need a trail cam slipped into your work place to see the production line - NOT!) :) just kidding! not trying to get you fired!

I love raccoons, they are so curious. I finally bought my first trail cam! I did it mostly because I had reason to believe a mountain lion was hanging out on my observation deck hunting at night and I wanted to get some pictures of him/her. Of course he hasn't been back since I set up the camera (just 2 days ago). I got an inexpensive one for now and may upgrade later. Thanks for the inspiration!

Where there are does, the bucks will follow, come summer the velvet starts to show on their antlers...I love getting those pics. You have half a dozen coming, great! Those coon are lil' rascals.
Thanks for stopping by. Did you see the entry with the 2 bobcats...hmmm, I wonder just how many more are around.

Nice pics of the ladies, but I do always like to see the raccoons.

Love the pic of the stomping doe and raccoon. A lot of good that stomping is going to do her!

It's nice to see the does out and about and they appear to be healthy and doing well.

In the third photo, two does are staring at each other, one with ears back and the other with ears perked forward. I wonder what they were saying to each other?

I'm sure that the deer wish that the raccoons would get lost!

Our forest continues to be "shut down"... I haven't seen it so difficult to travel in many years. I don't blame the animals for leaving.

These are all great but I love the last one!

dang coons! Love the daylight shots of the deer!

Nice lookin' ladies! I love the 'coons too. Do you bait at all? I haven't gotten a raccoon in MONTHS! And I've never seen such large groups as you show in your pictures!

Stripe-tails and whitetails, nice.

All the pictures are just great, but that last one is priceless. Was she stomping her displeasure, I wonder.

I always find it interesting to see different species hanging out together. It my backyard it's usually birds and squirrels feeding side by side:)
