WW: Oh Deer!


I took this picture out the window of Bill's 18-wheeler
(truck), going 65 MPH, as are most of the  pictures I take 
when I'm trucking with him. It's a definitely a  challenge.

This deer made it back into the woods, but please remember 
to be aware of them & other wildlife when you drive. Thanks!

  1. Sure hope that deer knew to stay OFF the highway! It's always scary/dangerous for both driver and deer, we know they'll bound out into the oncoming traffic.

    1. Exactly. She made it, but I know not all do. They don't understand, which is why we need to be as careful as possible.

  3. I know, they are always romping around my neck of the woods. Two nights ago, while I was driving I barely saw one trot across the road in front of me, but I saw him, and slowed down. My hubby was impressed! We live in deer country and you just never know.... and yes we do get those other critters too!

    1. Where there is one deer, there are usually multiple. It isn't always a herd, but doe usually travel together. They are everywhere, though!

  4. The deers sometimes comes out to lick the salt left on the road. The snow removal crews put road salt on the road to melt the ice when roads are slippery.

    1. Julia, you are right. They come out to cross to other woods, but the salt does attract them, too. Thanks!

    1. For both the deer and people. But people understand, deer cannot.

  6. A great capture though! I tried to get some on the way back from my MIL's house, but they were too far back in the fields. All our highways have watch for deer signs - it's very common around here to see one bounding across the road.

    And a very good tip this time of year!!! WATCH FOR THE 2nd ONE!!
    many does will have babies running with them -- you may miss the mom - but get the baby deer if you don't slow down and watch.

  7. I saw some deers too while I was driving one night. Yes, we have to be aware of them. Beautiful creatures!

  8. That is a great shot your hubby took of the deer. I love deer. Take care and Tahnks for stopping by - you guessed it Central Park! It's so pretty in spring.

    1. No! I took this picture! Sorry for the misunderstanding. Bill doesn't take pictures while driving; not a good idea. But, I take pictures when I go with him. Thanks!

  12. It always makes us so nervous to see wildlife so close to the road. We always cheer when we see them head back into the woods.

    1. So do we. I cannot stress enough the need to be careful.

  13. Ya I remember seeing a bunch of them standing. waiting impatiently to cross, when I was driving in the early morning, late at night, chasing snow, going 70 mph, in Llano, TX, last year. Cool picture! : )

    1. Cars definitely go faster than trucks. Be careful, Joseph!

  14. Deer is beautiful, and so is wildlife :-)

  15. Not a bad shot considering you're in a truck going 65mph. And, you're so right you gotta be careful. Deer can cause a lot of trouble for motorists.

    1. Thanks, Cathy. Unfortunately, motorists often cause trouble by speeding or changing lanes without checking. It is difficult.

  16. Great job at that speed. I'm not good at catching things on the fly like that. I'm not that good at using the camera even when I have it with me and things aren't moving that fast.
