Deer Makes a Feathered Friend
“My husband and I took the back way to an appointment to enjoy the scenery at a swamp in Cornish, New Hampshire, that we frequently visit. On this particular day, we were rewarded with lots of wildlife. As we drove by, I said to my husband, “I think I just saw a deer with a flower on its head.” My husband turned the car around and, sure enough, the deer was still there, munching on nearby branches. As I zoomed in with my camera, I was amazed to see that sitting on the deer’s head was not a brilliant red flower but a red-winged blackbird. The bright red patch with a yellow bar on the wing sure stood out. I snapped a few photos to capture the moment,” says Lorraine Carroll.
“I love this photo of a young white-tailed deer peeking out from the bushes. We were on a walk with our dog in the woods in our neighborhood. We happened to notice a bit of a movement and quickly took a photo of the deer looking at us,” says Russ Hayes.

A Spotted Calf
“My husband and I own a white-tailed deer ranch. Summertime is when the baby fawns are born. My kids also have two red brahman heifers, which they show at livestock shows. We had a baby buck fawn that was the runt of quadruplets, and we took him in our home. Since he was so tiny we carried him everywhere. The kids were cleaning the heifers’ stalls when I put him in the pen with them to see how they would react together,” says Rachelle Humble.

“During the Thanksgiving holiday season, I noticed that folks were leaving their leftover pumpkins out for deer to eat. It was interesting to watch the doe break open the pumpkin rind for the fawns to eat not taking any for herself. The entertainment started when the doe would step away it would then lead to the fawns pushing each other to get at the delicious treat. At times the doe would step in and separate the fawns almost to say stop fighting at the dinner table there is plenty to go around,” says Renee Lund.

“For many years, we vacationed in the summer in Upstate New York, in the Adirondacks. We loved it so much that we decided to build a home and retire there. In 2005, we moved into the new log home that my husband and I built. We enjoy the summers very much, but we also love the snow in winter. Every winter we feed the deer off of our deck. Many of them come every day, and twice a day to be fed. We have had as many as 11 deer at one time,” says Joan Trometter.
