I was driving down a street and saw this out of the corner of my eye:
I hit the brakes, backed up, and turned on my iphone camera. By then I counted SIX of these wonderful creatures!
Their antlers in velvet....as many as 14 points! Just meandering from one lawn to the next:
People driving by, riding bikes....no one even stopped to look at what I was taking photos of!
The walked into the next yard....
Decided it was a better feast....
and started munching on everything in sight. Including the owner's pretty flowers.
by then, it was nap time!
I probably sat there for 20 minutes just watching them. Then it hit me....they've been to my garden!!! I wondered why all my iris were trampled down. I know for sure one of them found that a comfy spot for a nap!!!
And my flowers had been nibbled on. Here I thought I had some kind of bug eating the leaves. Ha Ha!
Imagine living in a town small enough to share it with these. No, I don't particularly enjoy the fact that they are eating my flowers, but on the other hand if I could catch them I'd just take more photos!!!
Guess from now on I'll be taking my camera when I leave the house. You just never know what's going to be around the corner!!!
