Deer Visitors In Our Neighborhood

We had these lovely creatures come up to the house today. There were about 5 or so that came through. I was only able to capture these two deer who were wondering about our loudly barking dog who was concerned about their presence. This is a common occurrence in our neighborhood because we are close to forests and woods where they live and graze. We consider them our neighbors and friends.

  1. very cool! Unlike us in the city, where it can be pretty rare. About 4-5 months ago, my dog was barking at something while he was in the back yard, and we had three of them hanging about down the road. It was very cool to see.

  2. I took a picture of a fawn with white speckled rump and it’s mother about 40 yards from the road. I stopped and let my grandkids get out of seat belts while I parked on side of road. They seemed not afraid which concerns me for their safety, Tony.


  3. I live in the city now, sadly, but when I was a boy I grew up in the countryside. We sometimes had deer come into the bottom of our garden too. If you accidentally startled them, they would bolt.

    The most amazing thing about them was how high they could jump from a standing start. Seriously! One minute they’d be standing there and the next they’d be right over the hedge and into the trees.
