So I was outside this morning, filling the animals’ water bowl, and putting various kinds of bird seed in various places. When a 10 point buck walked peaceably out of the woods and straight toward me. And he kept walking, with his eyes right on mine. Very peaceful, but formidable, when he stopped 3 or 4 feet away.
I had already put the deer-favorite seed on the concrete bench, and was surprised he had come my direction and not just straight to it. And he was about to walk between me and the house – which would make me skittish, if not him.
So I told him I was going to go the house, and that his food was already out. He stopped, I went inside, he ate.
A pretty interesting start to the morning!
p. s. and the chipmunks are still awake – we’ve had a hard frost, and they are still awake Another amazing fact…
