~Returning Guests~



It's been a while since we've seen our deer friends this close to the house. I noticed them late yesterday evening and rushed to get my camera. I snuck out as quietly as I could hoping not to disturb them. To no avail their ears perked up and I was spotted. I hurriedly snapped several shots, I apologize for the poor quality of these photos, as I said I was spotted and had to hurry before they scampered off over the fence. As large as these fine animals are, it amazes me at how graceful they can be.
The one to the right is licking the ground where the salt block has disappeared.

You can tell even by the poor quality of these photos, we're only seeing hints of green in our area. Today it's a cold damp 39 degrees. Many of us are wondering if Spring will ever hit our area full force. Yesterday as I was out on errands I noticed one lone tree trying to bloom, and a few jonquils but that's about it. Do you have trees budding out with blooms and lots of flowering plants in the yard blooming? I'm looking forward to seeing your great outdoor spaces.


On another note, thank all of you for your words of encouragement. As many of you know our lives is like a roller coaster ride around here. For the most part lately we've been up, but occasionally we have the downward cycle, we're out of that now and moving back up again, and sometimes if we listen hard enough we can hear the music.

Thanks for sharing these photos - they are pretty and graceful. Where my daughter use to live, it was very common for several deer to come up within a couple feet from their house and vehicles at night. She went out to her suv one night to get something and realized she was only a couple of feet from one. It made a snorting sound and walked off, unfazed by her presence.
I sure hope things continue to improve for you.

Thanks for letting us see your "guests". I loved when we used to see deer and then a subdivision was put in the woods behind us and we've only seen evidence of them (eaten shrubbery) when we had a bitter winter in 2009. Thanks for stoppping by with much enjoyed comments. Have a good rest of the week.

The deer are so beautiful! Yes, we are lucky here in NC. We have tons of beautiful flowering trees and shrubs this time of the year, as well as daffofils.
Hugs,

I think you did very well on your deer shots. As you say, their ears are very sensitive to noise. Trust things will improve for your and family soon.

I haven't seen our deer all winter??? Don't know where they went? I do miss them! I feel so bad complaining about the weather (and I AM complaining) when I think of the problems of others. Hope you are having a great day, dear friend. XO, Pinky
