.A short note ....
While I was out working today I was doing a quiet task, and one of my resident deer walked about 6 feet from me before she realized I was there. When she saw me, she didn't dart off. She looked at me, froze, then turned slowly and walked away in that strange pace where they take a step, pause with two feet up, take another step, pause, etc. She kept her head where she could see me, but didn't run away.
I was amazed and absolutely spellbound! I wish I'd had the camera but I enjoyed the moment nonetheless!
Since I have no close up doe pictures, Here are a couple cuties of a more familiar critter.
I was sitting on the deck earlier, and Jazi, Lola and Sam were in the swing with me. This is the first time Lola has wanted to get up there. We sat for around 30 minutes, and I got up to come inside. Fifteen or so minutes later, Jaz and Sam were inside with me, and I went to the deck for something, and here is what I found.
At first I thought maybe she was afraid to get down, although that made no sense, because this girl has not fear of jumping up or down. But when I offered to take her down, she backed away from me. She continued to sit there for several more minutes, and I peeked out the door at her, and she was simply enjoying the view from a new perch!
She is such a happy little girl.
