More Outdoors Pictures, September 24, 2013

The first “shot” is of an unknown bird, obviously a raptor from the stout legs.  My guess, this is probably some kind of young hawk, but I could be wrong.

On the morning of the 21st, these 3 bucks showed up (again) at the feeder at Mamaw’s blind.  Note, the buck’s have shed their velvet, they’ll be fighting in one to two weeks, probably the young 6 will be spared from the fray!  Another note, this is the first time in 3 weeks that I have seen the dominant buck, in the background, I guess he’s been resting up for the rut.

This house cat showed up at the corner feeder on the morning of the 22nd.  He was just checking things out and didn’t stay around long, a stray from town probably.  Look carefully behind the feeder post for the cat

Now things are starting to get serious as these 2 doe square off and the little one in the blur takes off for safer climes.  Doe will fight and the “shot” compares the styles, they fight on their hind feet and use their hooves very effectively.
