Ever get that feeling someone is watching you? This is exactly how we felt a couple of weeks ago whilst we were outside. Although in all honesty they were more than likely watching the apple pieces we were throwing, not us!
As we were feeding a deer from our front porch to the right of our driveway, atop the neighbours driveway to the left, two sets of eyes were watching our every move. Not that they stayed there long. We soon required loads more apple pieces!
Atop is The Daily Post Photo Challenge this week.
What a time we had with the locals in our area of late. Beginning Sunday morning, then off and on until yesterday morning (Monday), they’ve more than made themselves at home on our property, wandering through willy-nilly.
First it was a determined young doe climbing onto the roof of our back shed in search of the tastiest morsel. One can only assume she was satisfied with her nibblings!
Then at midday (in what could be deemed to be a lot of women’s fantasy come true) a divine young buck set up camp under my bedroom window, staying almost until sunset. Standing on occasion to rut the bush beside him before settling back down.
Then yesterday morning, having dropped the children at school and run a few errands, on returning home I noticed this little one between our back stumps taking what was obviously a much-needed rest. The poor little thing was breathing so hard.
The local deer are always welcome at our house. When out picking up Halloween decorations on Saturday, Miss Thirteen and I even spotted two deer walking through the car park of our local grocery shop. The best part – they even use the zebra crossings!
And just so happens this week’s Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge is… LOCAL!
