A Young Buck This Morning in Nance Canyon

A slight fog began forming in the canyon behind the house this morning, as the sun rose. I went out to the fence to take some pictures, and then noticed a young blacktail buck just outside the fence, to the right. Please enjoy these ten photos, taken as he made his way down our hill into the canyon. It is always a delight to see these gentle creatures! 🙂

  1. Ha-ha! Yes, before the fire I posted several signs in the canyon on our community property, ‘no trespassing & no hunting’ so it doesn’t disturb the birds and animals. They are pretty calm around here now.


  2. Just after the Camp Fire, Nov/Dec 2018, when it was still the wild wild West around here, my wife posted a sign in our back window off the porch, “Trespassers will be shot, survivors will be arrested.”… it stayed up awhile 🙂


  3. Last year on local tv they showed a doe defending her fawns from an nearby dog. It was not gentle. The dog was severely stomped.


  4. Beautiful image that you created and also the Green Tara piece.

    I had my yard certified as a wildlife habitat. Such a joy and priviledge to have these being around to interact with.


  5. Thank you! Once I discovered I could layer transparencies in Power Point, it was all over! Excellent – yes, I feel So fortunate to live in natural surroundings.
