There were a total of seven of them; you can see some of the others in the yard of the house across the street.
Many of you know that I have a “thing” about deer, and have written poetry about them. Today was a day when I had to make a big decision, and soon after I’d made the decision, the deer showed up. I’ve NEVER seen deer in my front yard before, much less looking in through the window at me. Perhaps he was curious about the deer skull and antlers in the window. The skull with antlers was a gift from my hiker in-laws, who had found it in the coulees around here. When they found it, bees had built a hive in the skull cavity. Bees and deer —- ah, the symbolisms multiply!
A wonderful afternoon.
