Country living….in the city, part 2

We had a few visitors the other night.

I’ve seen some deer in our backyard a few times since we’ve lived here.  It was always only one at a time.  I was going to let the dogs out a few nights ago, and way in the backyard I spied one deer behind a tree.  I decided to grab the camera to get some pictures, and when I got out there, I noticed another one on the edge of the woods.  I went inside to get a different lens and when I came back out, this is what greeted me.

It’s hard to believe they were all just standing there in my backyard.  We live in a very suburban area, but our backyard backs up to a short span of woods and then a creek.  Other than that, we are completely surrounded by houses.  They didn’t seem to be bothered by my presence at all.  I continued to walk closer to them, until I was standing about ten feet away.  It turns out they were a little curious as well.  A couple of them started coming toward me.

They walked a few feet closer to me, and then were distracted by something.  Probably the loud construction workers and machinery working on a house behind us, not even fifty feet away from where they were standing.

I did hear from the previous owner that they come around quite often, and sometimes will come all the way to the house.  While I think it is quite neat that they come around, I am not looking forward to trying to keep a deer proof vegetable garden.

    Wow, you have some friendly deer there. I hope your dogs don’t mind them in their space!

    Apparantly you missed the invite to the deer kegger in your backyard. Can you just see them all hanging out and all of a sudden, “Oh no, the humans here. Hide the beer!”
