A Deer?!?

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.

What a beautiful animal! We saw many deer in the area where we went for a small vacation. They are extraordinary delicate and strong at the same time. Love them, but you are right, not good around carrots;)

"Delicate and strong" is such a good way to describe them. I pulled the carrots this morning the tops were eaten off and they weren't that impressive anyway so I'm thankful the deer chose wisely. :)
