Bambi in the Backyard

We really don't deserve to be living here. I just have to show you what happened yesterday while unpacking my plates. I saw this out of the corner of my eye. Is that a dog?
No, it's a deer
Hello girl! We just stopped and both stared at each other for a few minutes.

As soon as I went outside to take a better photo, I found her just calmly sitting there, looking quite placid. I could have mistaken her for a lawn ornament.
I don't know if you remember Otis [the bear], but I prefer Bambi for sure! So now you get a little taste of what you will find if you visit and sit on the back patio. We also see wild turkeys, and birds of course!

Deer are the sweetest things and it is so moving to make eye contact with them. I dont even get really upset when they eat all my gourmet lettuces and leave the romaine -- we all gotta eat.
