On one of those wonderful sunny afternoons this past week, I happened to look out my window and I had eleven deer...all at once. I know that's a record! Unfortunately, because of the narrowness of my window, I couldn't capture the whole group together. The deer were engaged in a variety of behaviors.
Many were eating from the three feed blocks that I have provided for "their" yard. With the weather having been so severe this winter, they are always hungry.
Others were lying down in the snow, catching an afternoon snooze.
Bathing in the sunshine, nearly asleep, I'm guessing this deer was grateful for the warmth of the sun...even if the temperatures only hovered around zero.
