The pictures are just a little fuzzy because the way CuddeLink sends pictures...they send 5 megapixel images to your phone but they take 25 megapixel images...they do this to help save battery life....they should be crystal clear when I pull the card, but it’s gonna bug me until I know...do you think it’s a palmation of some sort? A leaf? Some kind of spider web? Thoughts? I’ll also include a few pictures of him from last year.

I’m betting leaves as well. Still being in velvet, he probably doesn’t want to get too aggressive about trying to rub them off for fear of damaging his vulnerable antlers. Can’t wait to see the clearer pics!

I dont think leaves,looks like they just about cover his eye. You woukd think he would get rid of those. Maybe some clump of tent caterpillars?

Can't wait to see what this is. To me, it doesn't look like what's on his head is really on his head - the shadows don't look right to me. I am going on record to say it's something dangling from a tree somewhere in between the camera and deer making it look much larger than it is. I bet the focus of the 2 objects isn't as similar as the low-res pic makes it look.

That’s what I thought too, but look at the tree in the background as reference. That camera isn’t moving but the mystery object is..... if that’s a palmation it’s nuts!!!
