Deer(e) Scavenger Hunt

4 Jul

This week’s Scavenger Hunt Sunday items are:  down the street, beneath my feet, faceless, blurry, and red, white and blue.

As I said last night, I’ve been very busy getting ready for the garage to be torn down and leaving for Iowa City.  Part of what had me busy was seeing this come down the street.  It’s what they are going to use to tear the garage down.  Inspector Bob gives it his approval.  Can you even see him sitting on that thing? You can click the image to enlarge it..

I also started tearing out the fence in front of the Love Shack.  It’s a lame red, white and blue shot: red of the rusty posts, white of the paint and blue tarp.  They’ll use those panels to build the temporary fence around where the garage is. Otherwise, everyone would be able to just walk off the farm; although, they’d be back at feeding time.


While I was finishing removing the fence today, I heard a noise in the Love Shack.  When I investigated, I saw the faceless side of the goose.


I also saw an adorable face.  I guess it’s a good thing I didn’t kick her out and throw the eggs like I had planned.  She’s only been sitting for about 80 days to hatch eggs that take 28 days to incubate.  That’s why I hate throwing them, though, because the others come in and lay in their nests.  I never know how long an egg has actually been in the nest.


I’m also hauling grain for people to do chores for me.  I swear, whenever I do chores, I have a chicken beneath my feet.  Poor girls get stepped on when I’m not careful.


Finally, I think a deer had a close call with a car when it jumped the fence into my yard.  I thought I might catch a shot of her in the bean field, but I was surprised to see her still in my yard.



I hadn’t even changed the setting on my camera yet, so they are blurry.

I’m also sharing with Bird d’Pot and Saturday’s Critters.

      This isn’t even Lucy who was delaying the garage job. This is a different group of geese in the Love Shack that also needs torn down.

      It was still finishing drying off when I took the pictures. So stinking cute when they are little and don’t yet hiss.

    Cute little chick- it’s amazing to think about sitting on an egg for that long- wow! Good luck with the tear down.

      There is one goose that has been there for that long. The white one closest to the baby only joined in sitting on the nest a week or so ago. There’s also a third one that has been in there too. Community nest.

    So do they take turns sitting, or the first goose has to hatch everyone’s?

    • Teresa July 5, 2015 at 10:45 am #

      It’s pretty much a free-for-all. One sits; another joins her on the nest; someone goes to get and drink and her nest has been taken. It’s pretty much nesting chaos.

    Look at those deer! Love the baby chick, too – great shots!

    • Teresa July 5, 2015 at 2:48 pm #

      The goslings are the sweetest babies! Of course, I saw that about all babies.

    Sweet little gosling.

    • Teresa July 6, 2015 at 8:14 am #

      They are adorable babies!

  10. Jeanne July 5, 2015 at 11:38 pm #

    Good job on the choices! The gosling is adorable! It’ll be interesting to see how many there will be when all are hatched.

    • Teresa July 6, 2015 at 8:17 am #

      Thanks, Jeanne. I don’t think there will be more from that nest area. They have pretty much quit sitting now that this one hatched.

    It’s great you are getting a new garage, that sounds really exciting, though a lot of work and mess. The baby gosling is adorable, worth waiting for.

    • Teresa July 6, 2015 at 8:18 am #

      I have been waiting for the new garage for about 16 years. It’s certainly past time to get this done.

    Such wonderful photos! Sweet baby duck (glad you didn’t throw out the eggs), and I love that chicken shot!

    Great Shots! All the “critters” are adorable. Have a great day!

    • Teresa July 12, 2015 at 10:35 am #

      Thanks, Sherrie. Hope you have a great week!

    Love these nature shots!

  16. Lea July 12, 2015 at 2:54 pm #

    I never thought of that as being the faceless side of a goose! We call it ‘the part that went over the fence last’ – Love the deer!
