Wildlife, Back in the Bush

My husband has a camera mounted to a tree in our back yard.  It’s a motion-activated camera. He set it to video mode last week and we’ve gotten some really great images.

Each video is only 10-15 seconds long, so I really hope you’ll take a few minutes to watch them, and see yet another reason why we love living Back in the Bush.

He puts out a bucket full of corn every day and they come to feast on it. 

Mama (Doe) & Baby (Fawn)
Mama is SO skinny!  =(  Maybe we need to leave her some donuts!

I love how she stares at the camera.  Project Runway for Deer!

And here, the fawn is just lying down, chilling.  

It’s so peaceful here.  So quiet and rural; we’re more than three miles off the highway, back in the woods.
It makes the long, bumpy road so worth it.

We love our home!

    • We have squirrels too, and turkeys and hogs and birds….you name it. I love the deer but they prevent me from having a garden until I can invest a chunk of money in a fence to keep them out of that area. =\


  1. AAaaaahhh..how sweet! How fun to get videos of them, too. I love living in Florida. People don’t think about us having deer and wild turkeys….and so many horses! We’ve seen wild horses and even a small herd of wild pigs one time. Even a small black bear. We have a LOT of wildlife! Enjoy your holiday weekend! Hugs!


    • I love Florida, too. I think that so many people don’t know the ‘real’ Florida! It’s much more country and rural than most people realize. There are a lot of wild horses in a prairie not far from us. We have a lot of wild hogs around here. They are mean and destructive and quite tasty when cooked properly. 😉


  2. Oh My Gosh!!! I loved these videos! Whenever we go on vacation and I see a deer, I go happy crazy, “Deer! Deer! Deer!” I love them 🙂 The fawn is just adorable with the spots 🙂
