Oh Deer!

This week has been fairly uneventful, but there's one thing that has really been neat. I don't know what season it is (as in hunting) but for some reason there are LOTS of deer out in our neighborhood. For those of you that might not know, I am an avid animal lover. I love all kinds of animals and especially love to see them in their "natural" habitats. Anyway, so far I've seen a deer everyday this week, except for today. Monday, at about noon I saw one bounding across the road. It was a good distance in front of me where it was an enjoyable experience as opposed to tire screeching panic. Tuesday, Koby and I saw a mom and baby close to the creek. Wednesday I saw one roaming in a small pasture while I was on my walk. Thursday morning Koby let the dogs out like he normally does first thing in the morning and then Izzy began steady barking at something. She usually doesn't bark, just for the sake of barking, especially in the morning. So, Koby went outside to see what all the fuss was about. That's when he saw a deer standing maybe 10 feet on the other side of our fence. He, or she, was just standing there staring at us and we were just standing there staring at him. It was pretty neat especially since it would be a stretch to say that we live in the country where this might be a common occurrence. We tried to take some pictures of him but didn't get very good ones.

What? Those ARE good pics! I especially like how the second one is perfectly framed...like the deer is posing for a glamour shot.

Welcome to the wonderful world of blog! I'm really amazed that you got such good pictures, even after Izzy barked...I'm surprised the deer hung around that long. Thanks for sharing.

Is this the deer you two were lookin at in your undies? Nothing quite as classy as a married couple in raggedy sleepwear clinging to their fence to see a deer...
