A couple of months back I had to go to a nearby village to drop off package at a UPS pick up point. On the way back I spotted a deer looking to cross the road. After stopping and noticing it was going to cross I fumbled for my camera but by the time I got the thing the deer had crossed the road and were lost in the woods again. After carefully driving past where the deer had come out in case there were more I carried on my way realising that my dash cam had recorded the whole thing. When I got home I downloaded the clip and managed to save a few of the stills from the video. There are ten photos in this sequence and all have been cropped to show the deer.
It noses out a little further and I slow right to to see what it will do
At this point it turns to go back in the wood
I am fully stopped here and see the deer has gone but I wait a little longer to watch what happens, you can never be too sure with deer
Then I see it looking out again
and as I am about to pull away a last one darts across the road. That was it all over in a couple of seconds. What a beautiful sight.

Well spotted!It took me a while to see it!ReplyDelete
I'm Glad I didDelete
How funny. The same happened to me a couple of weeks ago. It was all over in seconds . Lucky for you that you recorded the event.ReplyDelete
Few years ago I would not have had a dash camDelete
Love to see the deer ~ great post, photos and video ~ReplyDelete

So do I but never seen that many beforeDelete
Good that you had the dashcam.ReplyDelete
It was indeed, knew it would be useful sometimeDelete
How wonderful to see that many deer there crossing the road.ReplyDelete
It was, makes me watch out more nowDelete
Amazing!What an experience😊Beautiful animals They felt safe❤ReplyDelete
Not sure they felt that safe, they were soon goneReplyDelete
A nice sighting! Your patience paid off.ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing at https://image-in-ing.blogspot.com/2021/03/bad-memory.html
More self preservation than patience, I would not want to hit one if it ran in front of you. It would not only hurt or kill the animal but do untold damage to your carDelete
yes I finally see them in the earlier photos, took me a bit thoughReplyDelete
I had to look to find the first ones as wellDelete
I would see deer everyday when I worked at a state park. Miss that much. Lots of thawing snow in your neighborhood.ReplyDelete
Yes you would after working in a place like thatDelete
What a fabulous moment! I'm glad you had your dash cam to share photos with us.ReplyDelete
I'm glad to see you this week at 'My Corner of the World'!
