Oh Deer! Don't Fawn Over Me!

Updated on May 18, 2010

Oh deer!

These are pictures and videos from my back yard.

The pics and videos were taken months ago.

The fawns are surly teenagers now. They are still beautiful though!

The video directly below is not mine but the music is very pretty!

Three videos are mine and some of the cutest deer videos ever.

When God wanted earth's angels he created deer !

Oh Deer! Don't Fawn Over Me!

I sat out here on a day quite clear.

Bored and waiting for anything to appear.

Not Micky's pic but it is pretty!
Not Micky's pic but it is pretty!

There were birds but something else caught my ear.

What came along but a few dear deer!

Micky's 08-12-09 Oh Deer! Don't Fawn Over Me! 01

Some fawns and mother deer were near.

They seem naive and appear to not fear.

They are such lovely beasts to endear.

The deer is an animal without any peer.

Micky's 08-12-09 Oh Deer! Don't Fawn Over Me! 02

What a beautiful creature for God to engineer!

It was the prettiest sight all year.

Micky's 09-11-09 Oh Deer! Don't Fawn Over Me! 03

I thought this sight would bring a tear.

I wanted to cheer but I made myself leer,

At this glorious sight that would soon disappear.

Dear Deer

      So cool that you post your own videos! The deer videos are so beautiful! I almost feel bad about eating one last week. (Or, part of one).

      Micky - In New York they are good for one thing, well two things, the crazy city hunters come down to shoot them, hopefully for food, but a lot of times they shoot each other. and (2) they are good for road kill, as they are always running out in front of the cars.

      Awesome AND beautiful. I can´t remember when I last saw anything so lovely. AND THE MUSIC!!! reminded me of Irish haunting ballads from my áuntyKate´days. Thank you so much for sharing this.

      Sweet little fawn. Mostly I think of deer as car killers because I live in the country. Very nice pictures. A great write too.

      Thank you MFB! I saw an "almost adult deer" this morning. It was just a few feet away. I got a picture but I've been too busy to look at it. Later Bro! Thank you!

      one of the most gentle and lovely of creatures, far too often a target for those who enjoy the thrill of the kill,

      and far too many are being pushed out of their habitats by suburbia encroachment, loved the pics!~~~MFB III

      Micky, Thank you for this hub - I will bookmark it.

      The deer having its face washed has an expression that says "Oh do I have too". The music was a good background to the hub. Watching the videos and reading this hub - was good, much better than watching the murder and mayhem programmes on TV.

      Mic, I love to watch deer with their young in spring, the fawns frolic and play. I must admit I eat them through the year along with Elk and in the fall I go north and hunt. God made them for mans use and they meet the given criteria of multiple stomachs (5) They chew their cud and sport cloven hooves and are much healthier than beef. Oh yeah, tasty too.

      Hey Antonius Blockk! Isn't it a shame to be missing a camera when memorable events are occurring!? I've actually had a camera on a couple of occasions and and thought, "Gee, I wish I had a camera. Oops, I do. Oops, I can't believe I missed that!" Thank you Antonius!

      Looks like you have a pretty nice yard. I love watching animals when they don't know they're being watched and just act naturally. Very interesting. I like that little deer going crazy, running about his/her family in one of your vids. Thanks.

      About a year ago, I was sitting in a park and was lucky enough to bear witness to a Canadian Geese battle. It was two rival, um, gaggles(?) and they full on charged each other. One of the bigger Geese seemed to take the role of General and as he honked his gaggle would stop or attack. I couldn't believe it. And sadly, I didn't have a camera. It made me consider the potential of a Discovery Channel-esque Goose Show.

      Do you have a salt lick? I met up with a fawn in the woods once, with no others in sight, near a pond and it let me stand beside it, just a foot from it but if I lifted a hand to pet it, it would stomp both front hoofs hard on the ground, but still wouldn't leave. It was a wonderful experience. I think of it often.

      They are so beautiful and fast. I've seen dogs run toward deer just grazing. The deer wait, wait, wait and then poof- they jump, hop, and prance out of sight! Thank you Ma'am!

      There were two deer in my neighborhood yesterday morning that came prancing around one corner at the same time that me and the dogs came around another corner and we had a doggy/deer stand off for like 3 minutes. I've never been so close to a deer...it was like 12 feet away. The deer didn't budge, nor did the dogs. People were pulling over watching in their cars. lol I thought for sure I was going to get dragged. Wonderful hub. Deer are so beautiful and so fast!

      Awesome! We live on a wetlands and see quite a few but it never ceases to amaze me how beautiful they are. I love the young bucks and the fawns most of all. Some are so tame here that they lay in folks' backyards when it gets blistering hot. Great thoughts on the beautiful of wildlife, Micky Dee.

      Thank you Always Exploring for not killing.

      Ten Blogger- I also am sad when I see a deer or any road-kill on the road.

      Each life, especially the young, is precious. We should "savor" every life that we see.

      Thank you all!

      My brother once lived in a home where deer came up in his backyard and he was able to hand feed them. It really thrilled him when the mother deer trusted him enough to bring her twins in close enough for him to hand feed them also. Nice hub Micky!!!
