We had sort of a little adventure last night. The deer are used to coming up when we are outside in the late evening, because unless one of the dogs notice them, we are pretty much oblivious to it. Last night we were just going inside when I heard a vehicle coming up the street, so I stopped to see what was what. Just in front of our house, one of the neighbors stopped their truck and let a family of deer cross the road into our lot next door. My son is in town visiting, so we all walked out onto the patio to watch the scene unfold.
Three or four of the deer decided that they would not come close while we stood watching, but the one with the scratches on his coat was not about to pass up a free meal. He came right up to where I have the camera mounted and sniffed around, occasionally looking up to make sure we weren't doing anything bad.
Yes, the same deer camera that picked up this gem. This is what a deer eye looks like up really, really close. Nice lashes. Maybe it's Maybelline.
