In the mornings, I usually open the door to let the dogs out for their first-thing-in-the-morning outing without looking outside into the yard first. There have been a couple of instances recently that I have done that, and they have gone racing and barking into the back yard, causing me to check it out, of course – and catching just a glimpse of deer racing into the scrub. But then a couple of days ago I got lucky!
The dogs were not out in the yard and I sat down at my desktop – which is positioned right in front of a large window. I looked out, and
the deer were in the back yard, just at the edge of where the scrub begins – two of them! Judging by those ears, I would say these have to be Mule Deer.
What fun! They were watching, but they apparently did not see me peering out my window, or if they did I did not appear to be a threat. Two deer! I loved it! Then, there were three
Okay, this is getting really good! And as they started to head deeper into the scrub,
three more appeared. Six!
Enough to give me delight in parts of this world around us at least. I hope this day finds you feeling a lot of delight and giving thanks with loved ones.
