Here's the Fox Squirrel, look at those claws!
Great shots Tom, both the deer and the squirrel.

Shots of Fox Squirrels will always be a reminder of the late lamented Rupert, whose recent passing will be a sadness to many on the Forum. Condolence thread here: https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/132-pentaxian-lounge/357957-rip-rupert.html

That looks like a great critical moment capture. The head posture with tail up suggests the deer was a split second from taking flight.

Deer that has been stopping by my back yard on the edge of Calgary every few days. Shot through the open kitchen window with my FA 100-300 I had pulled out to use when she was further back in the yard. No cropping or PP.

These look like idle eider, but I think they are all sitting on eggs. BTW in case you do not know: Eider down is collected from the nests in limited amounts only to insure that all the hatchlings survive.

There are no native deer in Australia, but six species of introduced deer have gone feral. Some, particularly Sambar Deer, are a serious pest. This Fallow Deer turned up in our paddock a few days ago. K-3 + FA*300 f4.5.

Sadly no. Between deliberate introductions of animals into the wild and the escape or release of domesticated animals, we have large feral populations of rabbits, hares, foxes, deer, water buffalo, camels, cattle, goats, pigs, donkeys, horses, rats, cats, dogs - and that's just the mammals. They are a major problem.
