When I posted about the whitetail bucks in our neighborhood a few weeks ago I mentioned that this one was limping and missing an antler. Readers had a few questions and concerns.
I spotted him running through the yard a few days ago so he's doing just fine.
Another question is about recognizing individual deer. We do recognize them if they have a distinguishing feature like one spiky antler or if they follow a pattern by appearing at the same time each day. Sometimes we even name them so we've decided that since he's a "half-buck" we'll call him 50-Cent which will last until he loses the other antler.
The comical expression might still give him away after that. No word on a recording contract yet.
50 cent! haha - love it! :)ReplyDelete
That's hilarious...half-buck is my favorite!ReplyDelete
When he loses the other antler will he become "Centsless"?ReplyDelete
Groan worthy! Love it!Delete
That's good Ricki! Either that or "No cents" at all.Delete
I think he is adorable. A little two pointer. 50-Cent, great name.ReplyDelete
He is gorgeous, even with only one antler :-)ReplyDelete
What a cutie!ReplyDelete
I love the deer, I just don't have a very good way to deal with them eating the plants in my garden and yard. We seem to really love the same plantings.ReplyDelete
It does seem a lot of nice plants are deer favorites.Delete
How fun to have deer on your property (although I know from previous gardens that they can do a lot of damage). He is a cutie, though--great name, too!ReplyDelete
Some days I enjoy sharing the garden with them and some days--not so much.Delete
