Deer are a common sight and a nuance in the East Bay hills, however I live far down the hill and across many busy roads so to have a deer nesting behind my garage calmly chewing his cud has been a surprise this week. The neighbors had said they had seen a big buck in her yard but I hardly believe her. Thanks to my handy smart phone I have proof and some nice urban wildlife shots.
I wonder if this fine buck he knows deer hunting season stars November 1?
He thinks he’s hiding and lets me get quite close.
Then he moves next door for the apples
Caught in the act
The Moment Our Eyes Met
I step ousted to check if my eyes were deceiving me
a pair of white butterflies danced by,
a squirrel in the bushes began to chatter
then the turkeys on the next block added their voices to the conversation.
I shook my head and rubbed my eyes.
Was I in a fairy tale forest? A Disney movie? No.
There actually was a deer in my garden!
Tell me what you thinK
Have you had unexpected visitors in your yard?
