This is Calamity. She's a young wild deer.
Whose standing in my garden. Helping herself to my flowers.
I'm taking these from my living room window. The Mister called me over to show me our visitor.
She didn't seem rushed or nervous. Just hungry.
I wonder if I can train her to eat my weeds. That would be a win-win.
Alas, it's tough to shoo her on when she does cute things like scratching her head with her wee hoof.
Or waggle that cute little white tipped tail.
We've seen her in various places around the yard for the last few weeks now. Some how my tiger lilies have been sparred from her appetite.
And I'm pretty sure the dogs and I walked right by her unknowingly while she napped under the willow tree.
What wildlife are you enjoying at the moment?
And if you have a second you can see deer that have visited us in previous years:
That is Doe Amazing!
