These Mule Deer join me in wishing everyone at TN a Happy and Healthy New Year. It has been so wonderful meeting people from all over the world. No matter how different we may be we are the same in so many ways. Not only do we share the nature sights we see but we form bonds of friendship. Thank you to so many of you who have taught me so much over the year. I had little to offer but to share with you a little touch of Arizona. Here is a toast to a wonderful 2008.

Hi Jane. And a Happy New Year To you I hope you are getting better now . good to see your postings again. Two cute looking Deer you have here. good detail and natural colours. well done TFS.
A Happy New Year To You.

It is a fun picture and an unusual sight for me. Whe I see mule deer they are surrounded by woods and pines and such, not by cactus!:-) It would be interesting for you and I to get together a collaborated collage or montage of the two in different areas of the US. A very nice tribute and greeting. May your 2008 be plentiful in images which yous hare along with your fine words and notes.

Great posting for New Year's Eve: these two Mule Deer does look like they are each framed in a double collage and the quality of this 'double shot' is excellent in every way.

Thank you, Jane for this lovely photo. Is this from your garden and are they are just visitors?

I have never seen them before as so many other of your lovely birds and other animals that you have posted this year. I sure wish to go back there some day.... ;o)

Happy new year to you and your close ones!
Best regards/Bengt

Hello Jane ! Thanks for the wishes and thanks for those lovely deers. Well composed and good technique. Thanks ! Happy new year !


One of the things that surprises me most about the Sonoran desert of southern Arizona is that animals as delicate as deer can survive in such a harsh summertime environment. I don't have any online, but I've seen deer all over in the Sonoran. It always blows me away when I do.

Cute shot Jane with the two looking at you..And those over-size ears look soooo cute :)
Happy New Year!

Hello Jane

That deer on the right looks like it is saying to the other one, "Hey do you see that photographer over there?"
A wonderful shot of these two beauties.
The composition is well balanced with very good focus and detail.
I love the curious poses and expressions.


Best wishes and Happy Hunting in 2008!

Hello Jane,
Thank you for this beautiful New Year's card! These two Deer look sooo lovely the way you've captured them! I love their big ears and the fine colours and details. Stones and gravel are now taking over from lawns in the gardens here too! A splendid composition!
TFS and I wish you and your family all the very best for 2008!

Hi Jane,
Those ears are incredible! I think that they are the biggest ones I have seen :) They are sweet and very cute animals :) I wish you also a great New Year, filled with love and health. Thanks,
