No matter what time it is that I head outside, they are always lurking somewhere near. I came around the corner of the house yesterday and what did I run into? Yep, you guessed it – DEER!
I ran right into a Mommy and her not so small baby standing there looking at me right in our neighbors backyard. I turned around immediately, and ran into the house to grab my camera. I helped our neighbor a few weeks ago clean out their flower beds from the winter, and she had asked “I wonder how all of my solar lights got broke?” Well, dear Julie, I got living proof for you by this photograph!
The deer in our area are so used to seeing humans, that they don’t get scared off when they see you. This little baby deer just stood there minding its own business and was checking out what Julie had in her flower bed.
In this photograph, the deer looked at me with a ‘what’s up?” look and even as I walked closer to her, she never ran.
I got so close to her that I felt like I could have reached out and touched her. I did have to remember though, to look over my shoulder to see where her Mommy went, just in case she did not charge at me!
All I can say, is that I hope we can hold the deer off from getting into our garden. That would make us very happy
