Break Time!

I thought I would give you a very short "break" from all my Chrismtas lights and Favorite Things. Of course Deer, live or glass are on my list of Favorites.
 This beautiful deer was after something in the pocket of the wild life rescue person. Can you guess what before the end of the photos?
 this looks like fun, but we were told a deer is more dangerous than a bobcat when cornered or frightened  and anyone else would be in danger from the hooves, which can be lethal, they stand on hind legs and flail with the front hooves if afraid.



the treasured food was of all things...... a Bannana....

What did the reindeer say before launching into his comedy routine?
This will sleigh you (yet another Ho Ho Ho from Sandra Claus)

Oh my, there are deer every where. The eyes on the one on your sidebar are just a touch on the scary side. The real deer is a beauty, I figured he was after some type of fruit.

Those hooves make great weapons, in the wild it is a good idea not to upset Bambi.

Great pictures. For a moment I thought that might be Bob. We almost hit a deer coming home from John's home last week. It was small but we were doing 50mph at the time, it would have realy made a mess of the truck.

What a treat!! :) I have never heard of them eating bananas before but who's to say we all have to like the same things? :)

AT first I thought he was licking that man's skin as I know they do that for the salt content.

Lovely shots Sandra.

I have been looking at your blogs but have not been commenting. I have been busy as you know. They are all good. I love the photoshops of the Nativity. I have got to get our magnet on the back of the truck. Love the little deer. I don't know how people shoot them. They are so sweet. I would have hated for Pat to hit the deer. He swerved and missed him, thank goodness. I also did not want to get in a wreck.
John lives so far out in the boondocks that can happen any time.

Dear me, a banana! Never heard of that. Looked like the rescue guy had a strawberry or red jelly bean in his hand in the third photo! Nah, no rescue worker would give candy, though.

Ha ha ha -- you are so funny! I look forward to your jokes each day. We have deer that come to Zone 3 each night and we feed them a deer blend food we get at the Feed and Seed. Beth says it is so relaxing watching those beautiful animals. However, they also jump out at us on the road -- not too relaxing then....I'm just sayin'....

These are great pictures, extreme close-ups! Really, more dangerous than a bobcat?? Deer me!

So cute! We get deer in the vacant land behind our house every so often, but not so much now as more houses get built!

Your riddles make my heart happy! Deer have the most beautiful eyes.

Love the deer photos Sandra; they also love apples and carrots.

George said...

These are wonderful pictures of the deer. I didn't know they liked bananas. I do know they like roses.

Sunny said...

Oh dear! What a dear deer. Wonderful pictures; I didn't know deer like bananas.

Oh the dear deer.... I love them too--the live ones and the glass ones. I don't have any glass ones, but have at least one deer ornament on my tree.

Great pictures of the deer..

AND---a big HA HA HA for the joke.
Hugs,
Betsy

Great set Sandra they are such beautiful animals.

We had a close call with a couple large deer that darted in front of the car last Sunday night. Too close for my comfort!!!

Yep, I've seen a deer attack on film before. It's amazin' how they can stand on their hind legs and use their front hooves as weapons.

Your little deer is a cutie!!!

God bless ya and have a most splendid day sweetie!!!

Ann said...

I guess that little deer sure likes his bananas. I guessed wrong. phooey. I love the little ho ho ho at the end. your jokes crack me up

Stacey Dawn said...

Such a sweet face - and wow - a banana - I didn't guess that!!! Love your riddles - keep 'em coming Sandra Claus!

We've been battling the flu or food poisoning since very early this morning (hubby got me up) and he's got it worse! I just feel like a slug but a little better (he's coming around). Anyway, I wouldn't blame the Deer! I think they are so sweet and wish they were never hunted! Anything with hooves like that- I'd be careful though! Nice photos

I didn't see a banana... thought I saw a cherry or piece of apple or something like that. They are beautiful but the damage they can do a car or even a house if they accidentally get in, is amazing!

DawnTreader said...

Banana?! I'd never have guessed. That must be a Florida deer! :)
