Idyllic days of Summer


A Whitetail Doe wades the creek on a warm June evening

Summer is a time of plenty for the whitetail deer. Food is plentiful, with cover seldom more than a few jumps away. The rigors of the winter, the rut, and hunting seasons are all in the past with blood sucking insects now being the major annoyance.

This doe seemed to be enjoying her stroll through the cool waters. Like the doe I too enjoy a refreshing wade on a hot summers evening.

Summer is a time of plenty for the whitetail deer, and they are enjoying my garden :( even if food is plentiful, I posted a fawn in my latest post, & a button buck, or maybe it's called a spike last post! Enjoyed your shot before of the whitetail hightailing it..:)
Have a beautiful week!
