Weekly Photo Challenge: Breakfast

I don’t usually take photos of breakfast food, so this is the closest I could come. These were taken right in our yard from our deck – two are from this morning, and one is from yesterday. Our yard seems to be quite a deer playground and feasting area during the autumn months, so there has been a LOT of activity at our place in the last few weeks. This morning I counted seven females, three fawns, and five bucks (one with a broken leg) just in our backyard. While the mamas and the bucks are busy, the fawns wait patiently and snack on foliage. This makes for good photo opportunities, but dense trees, active deer, and an overcast day can make it a “challenge.”  (Haiku follows the first photo.)
Snow for breakfast, anyone?

Ah, lovin’ for my tummy!
Crisp, crunchy roughage.

This big boy is running FAST and chasing after some lovin’.

  1. The baby deer are so cute. I suffer pangs of jealousy when my husband gets a better photo than I do, but at least your husband let you post his. Great entry!

  2. SO VERY BLESSED YOU ARE–such a joy it must be to see all this natural life, so unself-concious, while you are having breakfast, just from your own back deck! Great photos! So relieved that big guy your husband photoed so well is not near any of the good ol’ boy hunters around here in NW Alabama! And your chosen composition with the patches of snow, feeding fawns, tender green surviving plants, and landscaping ties is most effective and artful.

  3. great to see the deer … i almost posted pics of red-necked wallabies eating in the early morning …but after posting a big kangaroo eating breakfast i felt i couldn’t … yours are lovely!

  4. Wow… they are just found in your yard 🙂 So nice to see them just walking around. I only see them in zoos where I came from. I like the second pic… artistic shot 🙂

  5. How beautiful writing and how beautiful photographs… Especially the second one, hit me much more… You put your heart in your works, and leaves such a nice and peaceful touches to my humble days… Thank you, Blessing and Happiness, with my love, nia
