So yesterday we were hanging around the living room, watching Luke and letting Bernie recover a bit when suddenly we had visitors.
I got a picture using my phone's camera.
The next moment another deer showed up...then another one...and another one...until we had SEVEN deer in our front yard!
I couldn't get them all in one picture as they milled around out front.
Poor things; so hungry and looking for food since the mountains are so deep with snow they can't find food up there.
The herd went into our side yard where they fed on our neighbor's unpruned roses.
Not finding much to eat around our place, they marched on.
Down the street and around the corner they went, stepping into yards in their search for fodder.
(They have an ENTIRE state forest to themselves right now, why they felt like our street was better suited for romance I have no idea.)
Guess we will be at least be having some baby deer in the neighborhood come summer.
