I was lying in bed last night when I noticed that the back lights came on. They have a motion sensor and I’ve noticed that even a large dog like Fiyero doesn’t trip it. Something big was out there. I got up and sure enough, there were two deer. The deer on Cape Cod are a little smaller than the deer up in new Hampshire. Seems strange,but true. I watched for a minute then tried to take a phone picture. The results are, well, you can see for yourself at the top.
The last few winters there have been deer in our back yard in New Hampshire almost ever morning. I can also hear them out in the woods at night. I’ve written a few poems about them and have taken a couple of pictures (see below).
I have no idea why I love watching deer, but I do. It makes me smile :)
