A young whitetail buck decided that a wedding photo shoot was the perfect time to grab a snack.
Michigan couple Luke and Morgan Mackley were having their wedding photos taken in a scenic wildlife area when the buck walked straight up to them and started nibbling at the bouquet.
The couple could only laugh at the buck’s persistence, and the photographer wasn’t about to miss an opportunity for some very unusual pics.
Eventually, Morgan relented and gave the flowers to the insolent animal.
It must have been the roses. Deer love roses. It’s an irresistable treat for them.
Of course, that still doesn’t explain why the deer was so brazen in its attempt to chomp some flora.
Now here’s where the story gets interesting. Earlier this summer, the very same buck showed up on the shores of Lake Michigan, much to the delight of the beachgoers. Parents took cellphone videos and kids gave the deer a few treats (which is never a good idea).
Even better, this exact buck interuppted not one but TWO engagement shoots in the Saugatuck area.
“It’s kind of this infamous deer in Saugatuck. It’s always by itself,” photographer Laurenda Bennett told news.
So this buck has a long history of walking up to people and interrupting photo shoots.
It had to have been raised by humans for it to be so comfortable around people, which usually isn’t a good thing for longevity. Especially since hunting season in Michigan is just about here.
