Wildlife Weekend: Oh Deer!

The other week I passed about 25 deer standing in a field (well actually someone's back yard, but it's big enough to be classed a field in my world) on the way to Aidan's school smack in the middle of the day. We rarely see more than the occasional deer or two in the daytime around here. We see entire herds at night, but the daytime is not deer-time around here. When I told everyone around here about my flock o' daytime deer I got looks of disbelief.

Didn't I feel vindicated when I had my camera with me on Friday and there they were again!

Granted I only got a pic of about half the group before they took off, but at least I got photographic proof of my great daytime deer sighting. It's the little things that get me through the day.

Nice to see the deer. Why are they are gathering together is just to eat or they hang out like this all the time. I am from the city don't know much about deer.

Duralee - I have no clue why they were all out there in the middle of the day. It's quite unusual for around here. I can only assume that maybe the people who live there put out deer food - or may have deer-friendly scraps on the ground???
