Birds and Buck

I moved the bird feeder stand closer to the house last night.  Here are a couple of pictures I got this morning.  (click on the images to see the larger version)

This evening, while heading out to pick up my daughter from work, we saw a deer on the road, then another dashing across when we were almost home.

What I didn’t expect was to see one outside our window!  We got a visit from a young buck, and there was enough light out still that I was able to get a few shots.

When I first saw it, it was coming through the tall grass in the main garden.  It stayed and grazed by an apple tree, before making its way over towards the house.  Then it started enthusiastically eating some elm leaves!  It was here for only a short time when something startled it, mid chomp, and off it ran.

The deer are so much more brightly coloured, this time of year.  This guy is all legs! 😀

I am so happy to still be seeing them in the yard, and to actually get some pictures, too! 😀

      Growing up here, I never saw deer coming into our yard – likely because there was just so much activity with 7 people and multiple dogs. *L* So I’m really happy to see them now. 🙂
