The hullabaloo over Halloween is over, and we all had plenty of rest since we could sleep an extra hour this morning. (yeah, right) Today lacking anything better to do, we are going out to check on the deer. The Producer says, “How boring.” I have to remind everyone that in the age of Rona, we can’t be too particular.
We are going to leave the bus parked and venture on foot. After all, a big yellow bus is not exactly conducive to deer watching. We do have a Good Humor bicycle vendor’s cart to haul our snacks and drinks. We are having hot Mexican chocolate with Kahlua shooters, shredded B-B-Q pork tacos, and toasted almond Good Humor bars. The Kingston Trio has agreed to walk along with us for entertainment.
So, put on your walking shoes, and let’s go.
The first thing we run into is this sign. I wonder what the parents tell the kids when they ask “What is rut season, Dad?”
The Producer captured this beautiful fellow. Man, she takes great photos.
A couple of does taking an early morning nap in our neighbors front yard.
A buck having a snack.
Another young buck taking it easy.
Three does taking five.
Here is a buck in silhouette watching four men approach.
He decides they are suburbanites and no danger at all. He’s pretty sure one even drives a Volvo.
The sisterhood out for a stroll.
Another young buck searching for a doe. Maybe we should tell him she’s not there.
This doe is hard to see, but before yesterday, this was an overgrown lot. It looks like the clearing crew is making it ready for a new house. No more naps here.
Of course, Twiggyis concentrating on the deer. You can barely see them in the neighbor’s front yard.
Let us finish with another of The Producer’s beautiful photos. I think she is a deer witch.
Well, that is our tour. Stay and have more food and drink and listen to the music. I hope you all have a great week.
