DEER AT BIG MEADOWS ON SKYLINE DRIVE, VA


These photos were taken a while ago when we were walking across Big Meadows.

  3. Lovely post. I never get a chance to take photos of the local deer. Two many hunters in France and they are so nervous and rightly so. Keep well Diane

    1. Thank you Diane :) The deer are in a safe haven here as it is a national park. No hunters allowed.

    1. Thank you Ginny, I didn't realize you lived so close as I know you don't live that far from Charlottesville. My good-geography husband said oh yes, that's not so far from Big Meadows :))) Now I know :)

  11. Hi Denise,
    Super set of images, they did not appear at all bothered by you, wonderful.At the moment in the UK we are inundated with rain and floods, no chance of getting out with the camera, so boring.

    All the best,
    John

    1. Thank you John, they were very at ease with us and we didn't get too close as we had the long lens. Sorry about your rain and I hope it won't be too long before you can get out for your own photo taking. I know how that goes. All the best to you too :)

  15. Wonderful photos of these beautiful deer in the meadow. They blend in well with the colour of the grasses and are such sensitive creatures. A good quote. May you and your family have a blessed Thanksgiving.
