Winter on the river.

Late in the afternoon a few days ago, a herd of deer stopped for sips of water from the river and then crossed to the other side.
I’m amazed at how high and how far deer can jump.
If you look closely on the left, you can see the head of the deer next to the yellow arrow. That’s quite a jump! The really amazing part is that they don’t even need a running start.

Loping along with attitude.

I think we should all take five minutes out of our day and behave like the deer on the right.

We should leap into a moment,

kick up our heels, and enjoy…being, just being.

Here’s hoping you take your five minutes…I stretch it out to 30 minutes, but, that’s just me.

AHA!

All three deer together (39 of 1)Can I eat this food too? wm (39 of 1)

I had noticed that the little bird feeder tray was unusually clean in the mornings and thought…raccoons.

Nope. Deer.

One afternoon I was walking across the studio close to the outside door and a mere five feet from me were three deer at the feeder.

I’ve seen these characters passing through quite often, but I had no idea that they’d discovered the little feeding tray. 

I thought the little buck was ADORABLE, look at it sniffing the rose bush.Done wm Little buck and the rose bush 4643_edited-1

But what is this?? NO! NO!

Well darn it. Now I know who ate all of my rose bushes. 😞 Mystery solved, disappointment activated.
