Deer feed by grazing on grasses, or browsing on plant growth such as trees, shrubs and vines.
It is often to get a pleasing photographic composition of a deer while it is eating. Lets face it, a deer with its head buried in tall grass is not the greatest photographic subject.
The wounded buck, featured in the post of October 5th, "Vanishing Bucks-Natural Dispersal Or Criminal Act", is recovering from his injury. Deer are social animals and the second photo for today shows he and his older sister "grooming". I frequently witness deer doing this and it seems to be a combination of nibbling and licking at the others coat. I have speculated that the nibbling is sometimes removing ticks from the other animal.
