This blog is not for the light-hearted or easily offended. If either one of those descriptions applies to you, i would suggest you start drinking before you read this blog. A sense of humor is suggested. If you don't have one that sucks for you … find one and get a life!
You guys probably don’t think this is very exciting but so what, it’s my blog. We have lots of wildlife around here as you know. That’s because we live in the woods, there are 3 acre fields all over the place and there’s a very large lake about ¼ mile away.
As a result we have snakes (yucky), birds of all kinds including hawks, eagles, falcons, Canadian geese, Turkey Vultures and other birds that look like they want to eat Butterscotch (the cat.)
There are also foxes, groundhogs and lots and lots of deer. So basically seeing a deer is not big deal but what is unusual is seeing a fairly decent sized buck (which I did) and even more rare is seeing very young deer.
You often see young deer with their moms and dads but you hardly ever see them when they’re still young enough to be spotted but this past week there has been a family of deer chilling in our yard and they have two babies (or Bambi’s as I refer to them.)
Normally the minute we go outside (especially if Tucker is with us) they take off because they’re a bit skittish but the other day Kevin and I pulled up after dinner and they were all grazing underneath the giant Black Walnut tree that’s across the street.
I stopped the car, rolled down the window and FINALLY got a few pictures of the deer before they took off. I don’t think that you can really see the spots but since I like them I’m putting up the pictures anyways.
It’s so weird because I grew up in Greensboro but I didn’t live in a neighborhood like this and rarely saw all this stuff and other than the snakes, I really like it! Also, thank goodness I haven’t run into any skunks because my neighbor did and the dog got totally sprayed. YUCK!!
