Wordful Wednesday: Oh Deer!

Wordful Wednesday is hosted by Seven Clown Circus.

This past weekend, we took a break from Fort Smith to head to Possum Kingdom Lake with friends. We started to see quite a few deer as the sun went down, and Mark mentioned that they would come closer if I threw some corn out. So, I did, and the next several pictures show you what happened next.

OMG, it's eating out of my hand!! (I couldn't fix the red eyes on this one. Please resist the urge to draw horns on me.)

Tony got in on the action for a few minutes. I think he was resisting the urge to wrestle the deer to the ground.

Here come some more...

They ate out of my hand like this for a long time. Their little noses are so soft. I loved it!

I had just told this one that he needed to lay off and let someone else have a turn. He wasn't amused.

At this point, there were 15 or so in my little area. There were several more approaching on the other side of the fence.

The next day, these ladies were feeding on a brush pile in front of the house.


And, look what was hiding in between our fence and the neighbors...


A baby deer!! This little thing was almost as cute as a puppy. Sorry baby deer, nothing beats puppies in my book. It let me get pretty close before it hightailed it for its mama.

I found it with its mama a little later. Reunited and it feels so good...

I hope you enjoyed!

Oh my goodness, how cute!!!!!! We have little mini deer down in the Keys (no really, they are mini. They are native to the keys, and called Key Deer) that will do that too, it's awesome! They are no where near as beautiful as those though!

Wow... I have never seen something quite like that! It must have been an amazing experience. And how cute are they all? Aww, I want to take one home... for a little bit. Haha. I'm with you though that, although the fawn is cute, nothing beats puppies.

Thanks for sharing these wonderful photos with us! :)
