This morning, a dear friend and her sons came by to pick up Jackson and me, to go to a cool park nearby for a playdate. When we answered the door, she said, “Grab your camera! You’ve got deer lying in your yard!”
I grabbed our camera and crept quietly outside, to see this:
The sun was angled in such a way that the deer had cool shade to enjoy. They were mildly interested in us….but not so concerned that they felt they needed to get up and stroll off. These particular deer have wandered in and out of our neighborhood all summer; but this was the first time they actually laid down beside our home!
Here are some other blogs with lovely wildlife photos:
