Scaredy deer



I guess I'd be nervous too, if I had to live out in the open with all those coyotes and bobcats roaming around.

Update:
Whoa! Go look at the bobcat pictures over at the Dharma Bums blog. Daytime, in-person, bobcat pictures. Our game-cam is soooo jealous.

It would be nervewracking, I'd think, to worry about being someone else's dinner all the time.

I bet he/she smells them (bob cats)or perhaps has heard the crack of a rifle near a food pile before. I guess it could be pretty dangerous being a deer in Alabama. It sure is in Georgia.

She's thinking, "Dang it, that coyote peed on the bait again"

Our neighbor told us that he watched a couple of coyotes take down a deer the other day. I would have never guessed that coyotes could bring down such big prey. So this doe is probably right to be a scaredy deer.

Thanks for the link to our bobcat photos. We were blown away by the opportunity this little cat gave us.

She is being cautious, which is good.

Thanks for the link to see the Bobcat. He is such a handsome one!
