On a beautiful, sunny day, I was invited to hang out with an extended deer family. I enjoyed their company.
I thot I might have the chance to record some behaviour that would be similar to humans – that would make a good post. I looked hard for it but couldn’t find any examples that fit. Ah well, they gave me lots of opportunities to photograph anyway.
The welcoming committee met me at the edge of the ravine and showed me around. Very polite.
This deer dug deep in the back of the fridge to find the best munchies. I couldn’t quite see if it found any chocolate.
These two weren’t shy about synchronized staring at the neighbours. Now that I think about it, they might have been looking at whoever was behind me. Once again I should have turned around.
Another deer started stomping its back feet – must have been upset at something. I’m not exactly sure about the point of it all but it was sort of cute.
This deer was plodding along a trail without looking up to see where it was going, or if this was even the right direction. I suppose with no direction you never fail at reaching your destination.
Then there was the obligatory stand-up reception where the deer pretended not to look bored – some more successfully than others. They definitely needed better party planners.
This young one was carefully following mom around while the sun was setting in the background. The mom kept a watchful eye on the proceedings.
Another deer heading for a ridge on an evening out on the town or maybe bush.
Maybe next time I’ll just make up some behaviour that would appear to be like humans.
