Deer Watching

Oh Deer

I just had to share these neat photos of a deer that stood right outside our family room window :) We were all sitting here as it walked right up the pathway and at one point stood right in front of the window looking in!

Deer Watching

The youngest two tried as hard as possible to stand quietly without fidgeting and talking but no matter how much noise they made the deer didn't seem to take much notice. All I can think is that it must have been mighty hungry. It ripped off mouthfuls from the cedar tree at the edge of the window rapidly while glancing our way every once in a while.

Oh Deer

Such a neat experience to be only mere feet away :)

We did have a mighty nosy bear that stood outside this very window a few years back and even pushed on it with his paws (some of you might remember Dennis the Mennis) but this was a much more enjoyable experience *grin*.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend :)

How neat! Yes, I'd rather have a deer at my window than a bear!

That bear sounds rather terrifying, though! We saw one walk through my in-laws backyard not long after the kids came in from playing...gave us a bit of a start!

oh wow, what a lovely surprise! The bear must have been a bit scary! We had a camel in the front yard not long ago! That gave us a laugh, silly camel stood at the front door, like a dog waiting to come in!

Oh my. What a lovely experience. So lovely that you could provide it a much needed snack. A step up from a bird feeder.

We have deer around us and they are fascinated by our Deerhound, but they keep a well calculated distance at all times.

That photo of your kids with the deer on the other side of the glass is priceless! Definitely one for the album.
