I've been fortunate to see a lot of wildlife in the last couple of weeks. Here's some of the ones I've seen and enjoyed.

 

Ran across a small herd of deer in a front yard while driving I stopped the car and watched them for a while:

Soon a larger deer showed up and he soon taught (I could see bumps on both of their heads) this young buck the meaning of being the dominant buck.

Here's some of the preying mantis egg masses in our burning bush, seven in all that I could find.

And what the heck do you think this is?

Does this help?

One more for the bird watcher in all of us:

It was turkey buzzards mating. I sure wished I had a longer lens with me. My steady eddy 18-200VR did the best it could.
