Our World and Nature Notes: Caution Joggers Deer Crossing


The deer on the left hand side of this shot ran across the path in front of the joggers on the right hand side.

Once the deer crossed the path it settled in for some serious grazing. I'm going to update this post as a result of a question about whether I see a lot of deer here. There didn't use to be deer in my subdivision (or at least not for a long time) but as more and more subdivisions are being built and there are less rural and forested areas near here, the deer are turning up more in the woods beside the creeks which feed into the lake where I walk in my subdivision. I also have foxes that nest (second year in a row) in my wild back yard. Where I live use to be considered North Raleigh (I'm in a subdivision built in the 1960s) but now my part of town is referred to as Midtown Raleigh  by the newspapers. The sprawl has continued with subdivision upon subdivision being built north of me in areas that use to be outside of Raleigh and part of the countryside not long ago. I decided to update this post since it is for Nature Notes and I rarely write much but this has been an issue with nature in my world. The wildlife get crowded out of more and more places and has to make do with parks and larger lots.

I might be tempted to take up jogging if I had a path like that with wildlife. (Although I'm sure walkers see even more beauty!)

We saw a young buck tonight as we were sitting on our deck. They're eating the wild lupine in the forest. It just flicked its ears at us and kept munching!

Great capture Carver. It is such a blessing to be able to view wildlife safely up close. Thanks for sharing.

Indrani said...

That is so close. Sometimes I wonder whether we are encroaching into wildlife or they are encroaching into city life. :)

Felicia said...

yes it's sad that we are infringing on their homes.

great photos

Beautiful shots!

The encroachment of Deer into residential areas is also becoming a problem over here (UK) especially where their numbers are allowed to increase beyond the ability of their natural habitats to support them.
