My wild neighbours...🦌

β€’16 Replies

Hi everyone,

I'd been cutting the hedge back when I noticed a neighbour helping with the pruning and her mate was helping with cutting the grass. He is a very dark looking buck where as the doe is much lighter. They both look very healthy and well fed to me but because they're wild you have to approach them gently as they're easily spooked and very fast and flighty so they're here one minute then whoosh they're gone...this photo is of the buck.

Here's the doe helping with the pruning:

We have a Topic: Nature pictures if anyone wants to post photo's of wild life, their gardens, allotments or whatever takes your fancy, then please do. 😊

Jerry what a lovely photo - will you be naming you little garden helpers, I am sure they will be back, your grass looks really healthy

Hi Debs, They will come up to your garden fence and eat out of your hand as they seem to prefer us behind fences...😊

Where do you live?

They are probably planning a family!

Hi Luludean, I thought that the doe looked pregnant...I live in the Forest where the wild boars are the local hooligans...

Here's the doe:

She is very close to my car in this shot...😊

She does look like she's expecting. I have never seen a buck this color. I live in Montana and the doe sort of looks like our whitetail deer.

Hi judyagasco, our deer are fallow deer, we have a few red deer living in the south of the forest:

I bet you get some fabulous wildlife in Montana. 😊
