Fog, Rain And Sunshine...

This week started out with a lot of early morning fog, sprinkles, drizzles and downpours.  Yesterday the skies began to clear and some welcome sunshine arrived.  The first photo is from Tuesday.  Even though I spent 4 hours waiting and watching, these does bedding in the misty woods were all that I could find...


About mid-morning on Wednesday the sky lightened and the sun broke through.  I found these bucks hanging out with a doe...


This 9 point is one that I have numerous photos of, but he is so beautiful that I can't resist snapping more when he is visible...


This respectable 8 point lost last half of his antlers in a battle with another buck for breeding rights...


Here is the doe they were interested in.  She's a cutie isn't she?


I returned in the afternoon to see if anything was visible and found the same 9 point still chasing the doe.  They were in the woods when I arrived...



A short time later she crossed a field bordering the woods with the 9 point close behind.

Next to appear was this 7 point that was following her scent but being careful to keep his distance from the larger 9 point...


When he crossed the field he found a group of does loafing on the edge and checked them all out...




Later, I found this large buck following a doe in a corn field.  You do see the buck don't you?  Look through the fork in the tree and you should spot him...


He is a little easier to see in this photo...


As I was heading home I spotted  a lot of deer in a farmers field.  One was a piebald fawn so I had to turn around for a photo.  It is a very long ways off...


Wishing you a happy Thanksgiving.  Thanks for stopping by.
