Oh, Deer!

If you’ve been following on twitter, you may have seen that my side yard is apparently part of the Great Deer Oregon Highway. A few days ago I captured these elegant shots on the iPhone (#1 [you gotta see 1!] and #2 and #3), and yesterday I grabbed the camera just in time to catch this leaping buck as it crossed the neighbors yard.

Today though, I was a bit more ready. We didn’t see the buck again, but we did get two younglings—a boy and a girl from the looks of things. They were a lot more skittish than the adults, but they stuck around long enough for me to get this shot.
