Other Wildlife at OBX


I do have a passion for birds, but I also love and enjoy photographing all wildlife, great and small.

Here’s some of what I’ve happened upon during my walks at Pea Island NWR and along Cape Hatteras National Seashore.

As I headed to an observation deck at Pea Island NWR, a female White-tailed deer came out of the brush.  She stayed ahead of me, walking a little, then stopping to see where I was.  I followed, and stopped when she did.

I felt like I was playing the children’s game, “Red Light, Green Light”!  😅

We continued our game, all the way to the observation deck.

Okay, now I’m wondering if she’s going to walk up on the deck.  🤔

I wasn’t sure what to do.  She waited there several minutes and then turned to her left and started walking away.  I continued to and up on the observation deck and saw her heading away, with a glance back at me several times.

I’ve never been escorted to an observation deck by a deer before!  😊
