I love the colors and detail in this image.. such a beautiful garden and the deer here enjoying the fruits of your labor, lol.

Harold Fleming

Thanks for your comments, Heather! The problem with the deer though is the fruits haven't fruited yet.

Jane LeBlanc

Another nice job, Harold. I don't have deer....I have slugs!! Want to trade? At least you can see the deer.

Harold Fleming

Thanks, Jane! Maybe we can find something else to trade as we have our share of slugs. Do you have the large banana slugs, not that I want any?

Debra Plett

Very nice natural shot of wildlife enjoying the beauty of your garden. Very colourful image and composition.

Harold Fleming

A nice moment in time, Debra!

Jenny Stevens

A lovely composition with lots to look at. The colour are terrific and lighting spot on.

Harold Fleming

Thank you so much, Jenny.

Yves Langlois

Very nice picture Harold. Many points of interest in it, but everyting is well balanced. Super compo. The background vegetation is just amazing. Appreciate the lighting spot just over the head.

There was some trampling of the mid-ground vegetation, Yves, and many plants were nibbled but they will survive and it was well worth it for the photos and the meeting with the deer.

I took a few photos of this buck in my yard and then moved him out of there as he was tasting nearly every plant in the garden.
