Visitors to the yard

With the very cold weather we have been having, plus the snow cover, the local deer are having a tought time.

We always put seeds out for the birds and now the deer come in each evening to check under the feeders.

We decided to put out cracked corn in small amounts, specifically for the deer.

Recently the have been coming in the afternoon which makes for better photos.

They come as close as 1 -2 feet from our living room window.

I know alot of people think deer are a dime a dozen but I'm always thrilled to see them. What an awesome view you have! Their coats look so thick. Doe eyes- I get it!

There are quite a few in the park but they stay away from people. They know we are there but as long as the window is closed the ignore us.
