T stands for new Tenants ......


.......Look at that will you!!! Hubby has new tenants! And look how they like that pole on the top of his house!! 


Hubby wasn't home at the time and i was so excited to get these pictures for him....


I believe the one above is the male... he's sleeker and thinner


....And this one is the female... she's rounder.. softer.. just looks more feminine to me...... I may be totally , absolutely wrong though..lol  


... And look who came to Dinner!!! This is not the first fawn i've seen this year but it is the first one thats come to Dinner this year..  Momma Doe always waits until they are a certain age to bring them up to the house..  No matter how much i spread out the corn its gets a little rowdy.... There's always one doe that thinks it all belongs to her... lol  So the fawn has to be able to get out of the way of squabbles...  


If you enlarge the above photo you can see all the ticks that cover their ears... just terrible... ofcourse you may not care to see... yuck! We put out a sulfur salt lick for them every year hoping it will help but i still see alot of ticks... 


Isn't he a or she a sweety!!!!?? Hubby saw me taking photos and said something like.. 'oh we need more animal pictures....'  I think he was being sarcastic....lol   I just can't help it... they tip the sweetness meter for me..  But i DO need to go thru my pics and weed some out..... yes dear.... 



I love how the setting sun is hitting his ears in the above photo... If you look close .. click to enlarge.. you can see the veins in his ear... so delicate.. At this age they are all ears and legs.. 


.....And the crow family has come for T...... 



Such a squabbly.. noisy bunch.... They have nested in the Pine Trees... around the house.. Above are two parents and two babies... The babies are nearly as big as the parents but they insist (noisily) on being fed...


I even saw a parent feed them water .. and once the parent flew off the baby took water on his own.... Above you can see the size difference... They remind me of teenagers that just won't fly the coop.... The crows are my T reference this week... 

And last but not least ... i thought this was funny.... Seriously do you HAVE to sit on his head?? !!!!  I hope you've had an awesome week and i'll be around to visit everyone!!! Happy T day Hugs! deb

Oh I so get the taking of the animal photos Deb- they are all just darling aren't they? Your beautiful fawn and deer look quite healthy which makes me happy. Unlike the one I spotted in our area...
The bluebirds are so pretty. We see a few on occasion but they don't seem to want to nest in our area. Keep enjoying nature, and yes, keep taking photos too:) Happy T day!

Wonderful animal photos Deb! Gorgeous!

I loved seeing the wild life at your house. I've only seen a blue bird in this area a few years ago, but it was in Jan. The bright blue coloring was awesome. So cute to see the blue bird enjoying the bird house. The fawn is so sweet. the ticks, not so much. I've seen a couple of crows at my feeder, but for the most part, they aren't around. Not even for the water in the bird bath. Sitting on the head of the garden statue made me laugh. Timex, the chipmunk, loves to sit on the head of Beggar, the little dragon outside the sun room door. Have a lovely T Day!

Hi Deb, really all of the photos. Happy you have tenants in those beautiful bird houses-I remember when I was kid my Dad always said you can't paint bird houses for the birds-but now adays I see many painted ones.
We haven't had a baby fawn up close as of yet-our new regular visitors to the stump area is the raccoon, and either one lone deer or three
squirrels are too funny aren't they-I love them Happy t day hugs Kathy

Oh and I wanted to mention-the males in birds are almost always the brightly colored ones the females are always more dull especially during breeding season. the gold finches you can really tell-the males are the bright yellows the females very very dull but after breeding season they all look the same

What a funny and delightful post, Deb. You really write well - totally entertaining. Those little birds on hubby's bird house are beautiful. Do you know what they are? The fawn is lovely. Are their ticks the kind that carry Lyme disease? eek!

Happy T-Day! Hugs, Eileen

have a great week, deb! ♥

Congrats on such a wide variety of wildlife! It's a joy to see your photos. We don't get bluebirds or deer at our urban townhouse, of course, but we had hope of crows when a pair stuck around up in the oak trees a few days. They moved on, though... Happy T Tuesday!

Valerie-Jael said...

I so love your new tennants, dinner guests and all of the visitors, they have found a little paradise at your place. Happy T Day, hugs, Valerie

Absolutely stunning wildlife photos, Deb. I can't seem to attract birds to my feeders, no matter how much food I leave out. And the deer are beautiful, but the ticks can be deadly (yes, I enlarged all the photos). The fawn is simply adorable, though.

I loved your murder of crows at the water dish. Unique, interesting, and fun take on T today, Deb. Thanks for sharing your lovely nature inspired T photos.

You asked "When should we put the country next to our name??" I thought I made it clear, but maybe not. This is week 256 and we exchange ATCs during our anniversary party at week 260. That means we have four weeks until the exchange.

Love your wildlife pics!! The new bird house is appreciated. They are such a beautiful bird!

Your crows look similar to my grackles. The grackles are really black here, but you can see the blue head sheen in direct sunlight. They don't caw like a crow, though, and are a little smaller. Grackles are a noisy bunch, too. I would think crows would be even louder...and smarter--LOL!

Love the new fawn. Most critters tick my happy meter. Have a great week. :)

Carol said...

Love all of the wildlife photos!!!! Hubby is always laughing at me taking pictures every year of the new critters. I can't stop myself :)
It's been forever since I've blogged and I am missing it. I just don't think I would get around to visiting everyone if I did and that doesn't seem fair :(
Love that birdhouse by the way. He did a great job!!!

Meggymay said...

They are fantastic animal photos and i do so love seeing them here in your post. You are really lucky to have them visit so close to your home.
The new residents are lovely, they have found a happy home to move into.
Happy T day wishes.

Lovely photos once again! I love the Eastern Bluebirds. We only saw one this year while birding and I focused the camera and the camera wouldn't focus no matter what I did. I had to turn it off and then back on again and then it focused perfectly - but the Bluebird was gone. We just got back from the camera shop leaving my camera with them to get repaired - hopefully. The back of the male bluebird is very blue whereas on the female it is a dull blue, almost greyish in colour.

Thanks for the anniversary wishes on my blog. The Chinese buffet was excellent.

Betty said...

You really do have a lot of animals in your yard I wake up to rabbits, birds, and squirrels. Once in a blue moon I will see a deer in the yard.

Oh, what a fabulous happy post! I loved seeing all the wildlife that has been visiting you 😁. How lovely to have bluebirds nesting in your very special birdbox, they seem to love the design - perfect! Then there is the beautiful fawn, aren't his/her markings amazing. I bet the crows were noisy visitors and I smiled at where the squirrel was sitting too ...lol 😉. Wishing you the happiest of T Days! J 😊 x

Wow- you have bluebirds. I am jealous. And adorable fawns. You have a a sanctuary like lawn. What a great collection of photos you shared today. I really enjoyed seeing them. Hope it was a great T day. Hugs-Erika

Sharon Madson said...

Fabulous photos! I try to take photos of the birds, but they don’t turn out like yours! Don’t pay hubby any mind, keep taking these great photos and sharing with us! Harpy T Day!

Carol- Beads and Birds said...

Good Morning!!
Great pictures. I did not enlarge the deer photos...poor babies. We have had three bluebird broods this year. We have had so much rain we missed seeing all three broods leave the nest. Now we have wrens moving into one of the blue bird houses and the battle was on this morning. The blue birds claim all houses as theirs. My crows are bringing their babies to eat. All is good in my bird world.
xx, Carol

Cherie K said...

They are gorgeous pictures. I just had a peep at your other blog... well done girl. I was so impressed at how you got fitter and leaner.

Kate Yetter said...

Some really beautiful pictures of wildlife! I love those birds as they are so colorful. And those fawns have some beautiful spots.
Happy Tea Day,
Kate

Don't listen to your hubby. I love those wildlife photos! Keep them coming!
Yes, the ticks are awful. Poor does.
I smiled at the teenage birds still wanting to be fed and the squirrel sitting on the gnome. Never a dull moment. (You should join us at Friday Smiles (http://wipso-astitchintime.blogspot.com/) with stuff like that).
The bird house is beautiful and I am so pleased it has now got tenants. So it was not too late after all.
Have a good week,
Happy T-Day,
Lisca

Delightful wildlife photos today!! the bluebirds are especially fun, as we don't see many in my area of Ohio...and the squirrel is quite the bold one isn't he? happy T day!

pearshapedcrafting said...

Please don't stop taking the wildlife photos - they are a real treat! I was going to ask what the birds were but I see from others that they are Bluebirds! They look similar to our Swallows but a bit sturdier and more red on them! How lovely to see the fawn - so beautiful! Belated Happy T day! Chrisx
