Foto Friday 11 ~ Oh Deer Me


My son Michael sent some critter photos that he has taken recently around his place. 

Outsmarted by a raccoon!

Sometimes in the chaos of life, we overlook the simple things, the store door held open, the thank you, and have a good day from the checkers, the person who lets us cut in line if we only have one item.  A grandbaby's hug, a text from an old friend...there is always something to be thankful for. 

I wish you all a happy holiday and/or a Merry Christmas. 
Just for the week, may we all be able to leave the stresses of our world outside our doors.

You have a visiting herd and also a masked bandit. Enjoyed all the photos.

my stress lives within the home no way to get away from it. but I am thankful for little things, and find that there are many out there who respond to a smile, and others who do small things like hand a plant to an old lady pumping gas at Walmart

the deer are so beautiful and i count them as something to be thankful for. the one with ground fog is stunning. I feel like I am there. adorable dogs treeing the coon. glad the coon was not a pregnant female like the one that attacked our Jake, it was a nasty fight.

The deer are such an amazing and special animal. I saw three of them the other day on the edge of the woods trying to cross the other side on a busy highway. The raccoon photos are delightful. I love the deer photo with the fog in the distance, so pretty. Merry Christmas!

Love the deer images, you son took some beautiful photos.
The raccoon found a safe spot to hide from the dogs, cute captures.
Thanks so much for linking up and sharing your post.
Take care, have a great day and happy week!
Merry Christmas to you and your family.

Thank your son for me, he took great photos. I wonder how long it took for the raccoon to get out of there? I often see hollow trees and wonder if any critters are in there. Love those kindnesses you mentioned, a little appreciation goes a long way. Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays to you all.
