Be a dear would you . . .

When I woke up this morning, there was a small group of deer out in the garden trying to find some breakfast. I grabbed our little *coughcrappycough* digital camera and tried to get a shot of it. To be fair, I am shooting into the rising sun, through a window and a screen, and I’m trying to be quick before they notice me and run away. I think even Ansel Adams would find that a bit of a challenge.

Poor things – I know there’s not much to eat out in that dried up garden!

Then about lunch time I see they are back in the neighbor’s yard trying to find some lunch. I’m ready to make them some sandwiches and take them outside. Do you think deer like peanut butter and jelly? That’s about all I have because I have to go grocery shopping tonight.

Now I’m trying to photograph all this at a distance. Hoo Boy – this looks pretty bad! You can’t tell, but there’s like about 6 deer out there. Another neighbor we have keeps a deer feeder, but I’m guessing it needs to be refilled.  The deer are running through our back orchard all the time. Each time I see them though I get excited. It doesn’t get old. They’re so much bigger up close then you expect them to be (some of you know because they’ve jumped out in front of your vehicle)!

So if you’re feeling bad today, be happy you’re not a deer looking for lunch!
