Looking Out My Back Door

Yesterday, Momma Deer and the fawns were hanging out again. They are so skittish - they will bolt if they see a curtain move or spot one of us in the window - that you forget that it is a MOMMA and her babies.

I managed to snap these just after a squirrel had knocked over a bird feeder and startled the deer. Momma charged towards the spot, head and tail up, looking very scary for a moment.

The boyz say: We'll be good, no deer hunting!
