Welcome to another edition of Photo Friday.

RURAL, photo friday
The objective is to post your own images, based on a prompt provided by the Photo Friday staff.



This one gave me pause, as I gravitate more to the urban and suburban. A deer in a field surely qualifies as rural, yes? We were enchanted by this little fawn spotted in the brush, next to the Thousand Islands Parkway:

Are you urban, suburban or rural?

Do you see much wildlife where you live?

Looking forward to your comments!

  1. I guess I’d have to say I’m rural. I love seeing wild-life encroaching on civilization; but don’t like to be in the center of all that urban sprawl. Hate the cities, and avoid them. I do like the electronics and convenience of civilization though, lol.

    that is a beautiful picture.

  2. Hi, Debbie the Doglady! I think I neglected to inform you that I needed to take a family mandated four day blog break. I’m late but I’m back. Mrs. Shady and I recently traveled to the mountains of Alabama (yes, ‘Bama has mountains). On the way, driving at night on a rural road, we spotted two fawns walking a few feet from the pavement. We whizzed by so fast that I didn’t see the mother. I couldn’t help praying for the tiny creatures to move back into the woods and out of harm’s way.

    Thanks for showing me the pic you snapped, dear friend Debbie. I look forward to attending your band battle today!

  3. This is a perfect shot! He (or she) looks like he is posing just for you. I think of totem animals when I see something like this. the native teachings states that The deer represents gentleness-To be gentle with yourself. Isn;t that nice?

  4. Oh, wow! I haven’t seen one of these in ages! How lucky you are to have them around… I’m rural, I think… Urban works well for a few days, and suburban I couldn’t survive if I tried (or if someone paid me to try, haha). I love falling asleep to an orchestra of crickets (or, here in Curaçao, of tree frogs), I love the sound of parrots coming in to attack my kenepa tree (kenepa is a kind of fruit, smallish and green on the outside, orange inside, a bit tangy), I love spotting iguanas sunning themselves at the side of the road… There’s not much wildlife here, compared to other ‘rural’ places, but I do enjoy what little there is 🙂 Great photo, Debbie!

    1. Hi, Guilie; We don’t have them around here either. This photo was taken during our last road trip. I could handle rural for about a week, max. LOL Too used to have everything I need right here in suburbia 😉 Plus, it’s close enough to the big city to go there anytime, but doesn’t have as much grime, noise and crime. Crickets are a soothing sound of summer, here. Haven’t seen any tree frogs, but I think they probably avoid urban areas. How cool to have parrots flying around! Kenepa I’m not familiar with. Google gave me this link if anyone else is curious:
      Thanks for dropping in. Have a good weekend. 🙂

  5. We are rural, and even see the deer in our yard every now and then, sad fact though, too. My sons have both been involved in 4 different accidents involving deer. They both drive for a living and at night. Thank goodness they were both safe, the deer sadly were not. We also have a few critters that call our back yard home, rabbits, squirrels, skunks and a ground hog. The skunk, I could live without, he likes spraying his perfume as he walks down to the road to flirt with the ladies. 🙂

    1. Deer in the yard would be something I’d love to experience, but yes, I can imagine the road accidents are pretty bad. Those poor critters don’t have any traffic sense. 🙁 We have squirrels and chipmunks in the yard and the odd raccoon comes by as well. Skunks are around, but thankfully, not while the dogs are outside.

  6. A beautiful photo. It’s like she’s saying… “Oh my deer/dear ( heh heh ), did you get all my spots?”

    We live in a suburb, that was actually a village about 10 years ago. It’s now bursting at all seams. You name it, they have built it. Now we are suddenly living in a big modern town. That does have its advantages. We still live across a field, where we can see huge rabbits hopping all about.

    1. Thanks. Angelika; I was happy the photo turned out well. 🙂 Our suburb is similar, but the rate of growth is getting ridiculous, now. 😛 Nice that you can still see some wildlife. We have rabbits as well, along with racoons and skunks, which are not so nice.

  7. Debbie, spotting any wildlife is rural in my opinion & so cool to boot. Fabulous shot! I will have to try to join in on this hop sometime. Feel free to take a peek at my Skywatch Friday photo & I’ll see you on Sunday!

    1. Thanks, Cathy; I will check out your Skywatch post. Looks like another good Friday photo op.
      I’ll be skipping this BOTB, but will do the next one on Dec. 1. Have a good weekend. 🙂
