IN THE QUIET OF THE AFTERNOON...

My best Acquaintances are those With Whom I spoke no word~ Emily Dickinson


He stepped quietly from the thicket of woods...
he was there but a few seconds..
and then he was gone.....a few seconds , a few photos! From what I can see he is sporting ten points??

I think he was playing hard to get! LoL! 1st he showed you how handsome he was and then had to run away to make you appreciate him.
Great shots!

YIPPEE, Tina!!!! What a drop dead gorgeous buck that is! I bet you were almost having a heart attack hoping to get the focus perfect and the light right...and I bet you couldn't wait to get these on the computer to see them up close!! WOW! I love the quote...I love the pictures...I love the post title...I love the buck! You lucky duck!
Were you in the car? Or walking?

Chris said...

Beautiful, but he saw you...
Very good shots indeed

Tina said...

Thanks everyone for stopping by...he was a beaut! I was out for a quiet walk and just happen to have been in the right spot at the right time...he just stepped out of the woods for a few moments!

No there isn't a shot gun barrel in the last pic..just some fence posts and a lot of ooohs and ahhhs and Barb was right about feeling some panic, hearing myself take some tiny breaths...hoping I got one of four pics in focus!! lol!!

Tina: What a neat capture of the big buck. Probably at least 11 points and a real trophy for the deer hunter. Good thing he ghosted away.

Great shots Tina!!! Both of my brothers hunt but I could never shoot one of those unless I was really hungry and needed food.
