I'm still sitting in bed, watching The View, and writing articles for the newspaper (I know, I'm lazy!!) and to my surprise a deer just jumped over the fence into the yard and is a foot from my window!!! But I can't go get the camera or I will scare her away!! I think it is the same doe that I photographed a while back in my yard with her two fawns. Right now the two babies (hardly babies now!!) are outside the fence grazing. One is a boy with little nubbins on his head where his antlers will be emerging soon. The other is just beyond a tree, so I can't see its head to see if it had nubbins, too.
Oh! Right now, Mama is looking in the window at China who is perched on the edge of the bed, seemingly wondering what the heck that is!! I guess it is pretty mutual! Oh, my, this is so amazing!! I have to move very slowly and carefully to not chase her away, but she is simply getting a bite of grass, then gazing in the window as she chews. Oh, Oh!! The baby boy just jumped the fence, too, and he is also right out side the window! Gasp! Here is the other baby, also a boy!
I know I sound like a goofball! I've been this close to deer before, but for some reason, this is just .... over the top cool!! My window is partially open and they must be hearing the TV, in spite of the wind that is blowing out there, but they are hanging around even with the human-noise!
This reminds me .... I need to go to town and buy a small tub or huge bucket so I can put out water for them. You know, I'm sure, that we shouldn't feed them because they become dependent on that, but water, especially is a drought like this, is a very good idea. So I need to finish these articles and get dressed so I can go on my errand!!
