Saturday’s Critters – Tortured Poets and Pomeranians Edition

I was on a hike here in Tulsa and scared up a group of about three deer. We had a little faceoff for a while. All I had was my phone camera so you have to really look hard to see the deer. I love seeing deer on a hike!!

I captured a squirrel and some birds on my backyard trailcam a few weeks ago.

My sister Ellen, her husband Irv, and my son Logan took a little trip to Woolaroc’s Museum and Wildlife Preserve about an hour or so from Tulsa. We saw lots of critters including some bison.

They had some juveniles, “red dogs” but they wouldn’t group up. Come on guys, how about some cooperation. Move together. Look at the camera.

I have no idea what they are looking at.

And a group of deer at a Preserve Lake.

They had an animal barn and with this sad little donkeys. All donkeys look a bit sad don’t they.

And a sad little pony.

And maybe the saddest story. This guy was a longhorn cow that lived at Woolaroc and got moved to southeast Oklahoma for a time. His proud horns drooped because the grass didn’t have the minerals needed to keep them up. He’s immortalized now.

Taylor Swift dropped her new double album “Tortured Poets Department” the other day. Kodi and I listened to most of it on the back patio. Kodi loves catching rays and grooving to new tunes. I think he may be a Swifty.

I’m linking with Eileen’s Saturday’s Critters. Go check it out.

    Sounds like an exciting hike with the deer encounter! The bison look impressive, and those donkey expressions at the animal barn are priceless. Kodi has excellent taste in music!

    Hello :=)
    Kodi looks cute soaking up the sun listening to Taylor Swift’s latest song. It must be exciting to see both the wild deer and the Bison. I also think donkeys tend to look sad, it may be because they can stand for hours in hot weather without shade or water, or they can carry heavy loads on their backs, also in the heat in bad conditions. Nice view through your window!
    Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
    All the best

    I never did spot the deer in the video. I saw a donkey yesterday at our county’s semi annual farm trail and he looked sad. Maybe you are right. And that sad last longhorn picture!

    Hi Alan,
    Wow, what a great critter post. It makes me think I should recommend to Eileen of Saturday’s Critters a way to rank critter posts to her weekly meme. I would put this one near the top of the list. 😊 I got a kick out of the picture with the squirrel as one of those critters is the involved in my most recent post on John’s Island.

    Some very nice images (all the pictures are great, some of the subject critters are, as you say, a bit sad. But very interesting. The middle panel of your bird-cam fence picture is really nice — showing the bird just about to land at its favorite seat at the cafe! )).
