About Me

My photo
We are known as PaWingers or just The Wingers by our Geocaching friends. When we found our first cache we had to come up with a name to log the find. We came up with this name simply because of residing in Pa. and because one of our many passions is cruising this beautiful country on our Honda Goldwing. Aside from geocaching we are passionate about most anything outdoors including hiking, kayaking, snowmobiling and biking. We are blessed beyond words with a wonderful son and daughter in law. We're also blessed with some terriffic family and friends. We consider ourselves very fortunate due to the fact that after being married over 40 years we still enjoy these things together.

Odocoileus virginianus

Okay so rarely do we hear someone refer to this beautiful critter as a Odocoileus virginianus.  Come to think of it I never hear of the White Tailed Deer being called the Odocoileus virginianus.  We usually just call it a deer!  This cute whitetail is sporting it's beautiful summer coat which is much more red in color and quite a bit shorter and thinner.  We took this photo because of the flowered foreground and background.  Oh yeah, and we also thought the Odocoileus virginianus was really photogenic.

She certainly is pretty! Looks like a September shot. They will be getting really raggedy here soon as their winter hair begins to slip.

They are really beautiful and are my favorite photographic subject, although I am hard pressed to pick between them and elk. One thing I live in good deer country, so I have a lot more opportunities to photograph them.

I like how you captured the deer in its' natural environment.
