I can't get enough of these pretty animals. There are numerous well beaten deer paths throughout the property. They come much closer to the house than this. But, when they are that close, I don't dare move to go get my camera. I just stand there, staring at them. Because I know that moment will be all too fleeting. And when they get spooked, it is even fun to watch them run. They are fast and so graceful.
Up until moving here, I have sadly seen more deer dead along the side of the road, than alive and thriving in the wild. Now, that weight is shifting. And it really does a heart good.
