I mentioned last weekend that the turkeys and deer had been visiting our backyard. If you visit regularly you've seen photos of the twenty-five turkeys that are still visiting about every other day. When we started seeing them we also started seeing the deer again. We see them throughout the year but when deer season starts they tend to hide. Now that the season is over they're once again roaming the woods. They are a pretty large herd. I've seen about twenty at once but a little farther away than my camera can capture suitably. However, a mama and her twins who visited regularly in the fall aren't afraid to hang out and nibble on the bird seed under the feeders. She's brought her babies by for many months. Many of you will remember these guys when they had spots. I took these photos standing at my sunroom window. They literally look in my window at me.Here I caught Mama sniffing the air. I guess she caught the scent of something. She didn't run away so I guess she wasn't too worried.I took this cute little girl's picture Thursday evening. She looks much bigger in this photo than she really is. She is the smallest of our visitors. I worry about her making it through the winter and I was happy she was comfortable enough to lie down in my yard.
Snow started falling just before dark this evening and we have about a half an inch. I hope they are all huddled down someplace warm.
