Surprise in the Bean Field

On one of my evening drives I came upon this deer in a bean field.  She was just standing there eating beans, I guess.  She wasn't afraid and kept walking towards the car.  I even got out of the car as she came around behind it and walked across the road.  On the other side she stopped and looked back and then walked on.

Thanks for stopping by.  See you next time.

She's beautiful, Barb. I'm glad you were able to get some photos.

Nice capture of the beautiful deer. I can't tell if it's as dry there as it is here in MO, but the bean field looks green and nice!

Nancy Claeys said...

That never happens to me! She must have been somewhat used to people. Great shots!

What a sweet treat, Barb! I love deer, but I have a bad story about one, too! Once, when I was little, I went to a cemetary with my Grandpa and a deer came out and attacked me and knocked me to the ground and started jumping on me! My Grandpa took his leather belt off in a hurry and whacked the deer and she ran away! We were both scared!

Mari said...

Great pictures! I love these kind of surprises!

Sall's Country Life said...

Wow, she must've been delirious eating those beans!!

joanne said...

what a special encounter! First time I saw a deer and her fawns in the wild, I was so moved, I cried. It's such a gift...

Zoey said...

I do enjoy seeing deer--in other people's yards! LOL.

Mary said...

That is so nice to find a deer. The picture of deer and green field is so nice.

Hi Barb, It's very nice to meet you; thanks for visiting my blog.
What a sweet deer. We have a little mini dachshund that would eat green beans out of our garden, too!
You captured some great pictures.

Deer are so beautiful, but destructive. lol. We have one that comes behind our fence, so my yard has stayed uneaten, but my neighbors have not fared so well. Nonetheless, I still go outside and watch them when they pass through. Thanks for stopping by my blog! Have a great weekend!

Olive Cooper said...

pretty but glad that doe is not in my garden...

Laurel Stephens said...

Sounds like she was as interested in you as you were in her! Great photos. I just love deer.

Those beans were too good to give up. Great shots.

Terri Buster said...

Well, she's a happy camper- with a field full of breakfast, lunch and dinner!

heyBJK said...

Great shots, Barb! Deer do like the beans. Love the vast green field!

Karen @ away for the weekend said...

It's amazing how she just posed for you! I've never had that's happen. Great pictures.

What a great wildlife shot. Our don't let us get that close. They seem to be pretty skittish. I'm sure the farmers don't love to see them eating their beans!

Fiona said...

Thanks so much for linking up!!

my son and I took a bike ride tonight and must have seen this same photo.. but it was deer in the corn...and no matter how many times we see deer..it is always fun!
great pictures!!

Rita said...

Fantastic captures. Deers are such lovely creatures. Sadly, most of the ones I see here are laying on the side of the road after being hit by a car.

We have such an overpopulation of deer in our parts. I'n amazed at how small some of their nesting sites really are.

eileeninmd said...

I love seeing the deer, I just hope they are careful around the roads. You took some really cute shots too. Thanks for sharing, have a wonderful weekend.

Sherri B. said...

Oh wow, what a capture!! My heart would've been beating so fast at the excitement of getting photos of this sweet creature. Thank you for sharing, Barb! :)

Amy Burzese said...

Great shots! I see deer everyday at my house and have given up on getting a good shot.

Terrie said...

Oh dear, a deer! Love her in the country like yours. We're in a small spot urban find deer and cattle lovely. Your last post of herd of cattle just a painting.

Riet said...

Oh what a sweetly lovely photo,s

EG CameraGirl said...

I didn't know deer eat beans! But I do know they like corm. I hope this one didn't do much damage. Meanwhile, how nice that you captured it with your camera.

Judy @ daily yarns said...

What great shots, the deer here are so scared of people that I could never get that close.

lisa Moran, Bilancia Designs said...

This is a scene we wake up to everyday now and it's beautiful. As always, you capture the most beautiful photos. Hope you're feeling some relief from this massive heat we ALL seem to be having. We can't escape it in NJ. It's humid every single day. :(
Could be worse though...snow!
Hope you're enjoying your summer. xo

Mary said...

I love the deer in the beans.

Pam :) said...

Beautiful captures of the sweet faced deer, Barb.
She likes her greens when they are free for the taking.

Sallie (FullTime-Life.com said...

She's getting her green vegetables -- and she looks healthy and happy!
