THERE IS SUCH A THING AS A FREE LUNCH…


WELL, THE DEER HAVE BECOME REGULAR VISITORS LATELY. I’VE IDENTIFIED “DASH”, A DOE WHO’S BEEN COMING HERE FOR AT LEAST FIVE YEARS AND SHE HAS A DOE WITH HER. MORE THAN LIKELY THIS IS HER DAUGHTER FROM LAST YEAR.

I SEE SIX TO EIGHT DEER A NIGHT, IF THEY DON’T SEE CORN ON THE GROUND THEY STAND AND STARE INTO THE WINDOWS.

I THOUGHT DINNER WAS ESPECIALLY DELIGHTFUL TONIGHT. LET'S HEAD ON OVER TO THE SMITH'S HOUSE, I SAW THEM EATING PIE ON THEIR PORCH.

I SEE HER…SHE'S IN THERE!

  1. Somebody explain to me how a person can tell one deer from another. I always have several in the vicinity, but with me it’s “seen one, seen ’em all”.

    1. lol…if they’re around long enough to observe, just look for any unusual markings. For instance, “Dash” has a white dash below her eyes, on what I would call the bridge of her nose. “Stripes” must have had a run in with another deer, two long sweeping scars on her side.

    1. It’s interesting, some of our visitors are very aloof and then you get a few that are curious. I’m lucky to live at the edge of the woods, they can meander out for a bit and still dart back into the woods if they need to.

    1. Thanks so much, I really hope that I get to share some “baby” pictures with all of you before long. I think one or two of them might be a mommy again this spring.

  2. We see deer, but never seem to have the right lens or camera when they briefly appear in a clearing. Soon, leaves will appear on the trees. We will not see anything again until winter. Thank you for the lovely pictures. You inspire me.
