Oh, Deer!


I just mentioned yesterday about all of the wildlife that hangs around our home. We are animal lovers, and we are so enjoying this. Today was the best of all, though.

While we were eating dinner, the dog started barking and running down the driveway (which leads to a large field). Elayna looked out the window and saw that the dog was barking at a big doe. The doe was jumping around, and at one point she ran away, came back, and then ran away again. About half an hour later, we had to leave, and when we got down to the end of the driveway, I saw something in the grass......



.....it was this baby deer!

It let me get close enough to take this picture with my cell phone, but then when I tried to touch it to see if it was okay, it jumped up and ran away, bleating at me the entire time! I am thinking that the doe was this baby's Mama, and I really hope they found each other again.

We're living in a wildlife lover's paradise!

Oh that happened at my house when I lived in the Great White North! We lived next to an uncleared lot and the doe must have just given birth and was teaching her baby how to come out and get food... they heard us and the mama scampered back in the woods... I could see her and the baby hid behind the bushes in the corner created by the fireplace... we took picture... I'll have to go dig it out!

Oh how precious!
My Mom lives in the woods and we've always had deer in the front yard. My parents would sit out on the front porch and the deer would come up in the yard to eat the corn Daddy would put out. They would have as many as 20 deer in the yard at one time!
I hope that little baby found his Mama.
