We were a little nervous, what with all the landscape changes, that the deer would not return. Never fear they are back and I think they approve.
As seen, on a foggy morning, through the window~ They look so small way out there.
Around dusk, a couple of evenings ago, I snuck out the front door and walked around out back. Ducking behind a car, in the drive, I got several shots before I decided to walk up closer. There were three of them and one appeared to be the *lookout*. We’ve seen her for years, she is easily identified by the injury on her side.
She just watched as I walked closer and closer. That tender young grass is more tempting than I am dangerous, I’m guessing. One of her back legs has an issue, too. Poor thing…
They finally decided they had enough. *Lookout* watches for planes on the runway before they all cross.
Hmmm, that’s a joke people. We have seen exactly two planes land there in the 5 years we’ve been here. It’s private and I believe there are only a couple of pilots, besides Peter, that still have permission to land here. But why would you want to? It’s a grass landing strip that runs behind the half dozen houses that line our street. It’s not like it will take you anywhere. Well, unless you’re coming to see me!
What I didn’t photograph was the older two teaching the younger to cross the fence. They kept nudging her, in the rear, trying to get him to jump. They finally went ahead and went over and left her to her own devices. She was so tempted. Finally opting to walk to the east, (right) about 20 feet, where the fence is partially down, to just walk across. I think she’ll last around here. She seems pretty smart to me!
Yeah, they approve of the changes… I’m happy.
