Eric Alder's Monday Photo Prompt 7-16-12

When I drive on winding country roads
I keep my eye out and it ain't for toads
I'm looking sharp for those little deer
Who haven't a clue it's quite clear!
They jump about and chase each other
Into the street-their poor deer mother!
All ears and legs- cute as can be
How they survive is amazing to me!

They do seem to be rather confused, don't they? ☺ Thanks for playing, Kathe!

Unfortunately, they don't always survive. I almost killed myself once trying not to it a baby deer.

Stephen- I know!
Yesterday I was driving down the winding country road when I saw ahead of me two small strange animals...what the heck? huge oversize rabbit like ears- long spindly legs...oh my god- they are baby deer! I slowed down and watched these two cuter than heck fawns be ridiculous in their antics across and around the road....meanwhile the mother deer was looking quite cross and probably was stamping her feet...hooves? Do deer have hooves?
Cheers!

Love your rhyme, and they are cute but almost as dumb as kangaroos, which do not get out of the road for cars, ever.

It amazes me, too, as does the continuing survival of one miniscule fluffball who lives across the street, named Hershey (for his color). Animals don't belong on roads!
