Two left feet… literally! (Monochrome Monday)

Goodness, how fast did I run for my camera when I looked out my Studio window and saw this eagle chowing down on something on the top of our backyard tree?!

It wasn’t until I downloaded the photos that I realized what we had actually been looking at. Of all the things I was thinking it could possibly be, a leg wasn’t on my list!

 

 

 

 

 

WHAT THE??? (Monochrome Monday)

This is the look one gets when one is waiting for an afternoon apple snack. But rather than just pieces of apple, a crazy black and white cat comes shooting across the lawn chasing the apple… repeatedly!

Never before has Miss Poppy chased anything, let alone pieces of apple. Yet on this particular day she obviously thought this was a really good idea.

That was until Mother Deer saw what was going on, racing up to Poppy who quickly ran back inside. That was until the next piece of apple was thrown {groan}.

So Local they made themselves at home! (WPC: Local)

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!
