Deer along the Drive

Yesterday we returned to Skyline Drive. Since it is enclosed by Shenandoah National Park, wildlife abounds and can often be seen from the road. 


The deer in the first picture is wearing a radio collar. I posted pictures of deer wearing these collars back in March.

The deer in the second picture was looking out from behind one of the stone walls that line long sections of the road.

  3. I had the same thought that William expressed. I hope the collar doesn't slow them down any.

  4. Pretty shots of the deer. I hope the stone wall keeps the deer safe.. Have a happy week!

  5. I know the collars are for tracking them, but it is more fun to think that these are teenage deer and they need their cell phones!

  7. I love spotting deer like that. I've seen radio collars on a few around here but wasn't quick enough to get a shot. That 2nd one is really a cute shot.

  8. Wow, that radio collar is really big... I love one of the comments about it being like a teenager with a cell phone... and the deer peeking out behind the wall is such fun! What fantastic moments. Thank you so much for joining RMoD again this week! Meghan aka FireBonnet
