Thank you Michael Conner!!  These absolutely unique pictures were taken over Heritage Days weekend in July 2006.    Here's the text of the email that came with the pictures:  

"While attending this years Heritage Days, I was out early one morning with my camera when I came across a family of deer. There was a Doe with two spotted fawns, a four point buck in velvet, and an adolescent Doe. They were just east of the depot down by the field close to the lake. When the doe got close to a cattail with a redwing blackbird on it the bird flew onto the back and head of the deer and was feeding on bugs, and the deer was not even flinching a bit."  -  Michael Conner
