In the 15 years we have lived in this house, we have never ever had a deer in our front yard, much less in our backyard. It is a fully fenced yard. But here it is, out in the backyard:
My husband took this photo and got quite close (was also using this as way to encourage the deer out of the yard as it took quite an interest in my growing carrots). We live quite close to the river and have occasionally seen them in that area but this was a first. It was clearly a young one.
Near the carrots...(oh no!)
Goodbye deer, I hope it headed back to the river.
