Just before Christmas we were driving around the Tacoma area (which, if you know the area, is a well populated area), when we passed a house that made us do a double-take, as there were two deer happily and boldly grazing in the front yard. Β 

I expected them to quickly bolt when we pulled up and I got out of the car to get better pictures with my phone, but they were nonplussed by my picture taking:


That puts a whole new twist on ‘lawn deer’ decor, doesn’t it?

  1. That would be such fun to see while out for a drive. I was shocked to hear someone had sighted a deer in our subdivision a couple of years back. I was like, “you’re kiddin’, right?” It’s really odd to discover woodsy creatures that pay our neighbor a visit. When DS lived at home, he said a fox was trying to get into our garbage. I knew we had racoon and opossum that will do this, but fox? Oh well, it’s all very interesting. Cool shots!

    1. Princess Nagger would love to have a fox come hang out in our yard sometime… πŸ˜‰ We do have a pregnant opossum living in the drainage lot next door. πŸ™‚

    1. It’s always surprising when they show up in town for sure, Rosey! Sure makes me happy to see them, too – hopefully we’ll have some visitors at our new house! πŸ™‚

  2. Beloved and I took a day off the autumn before last and in the middle of the afternoon, a gorgeous 8-point buck wandered into our back yard and began nibbling on our strawberry patch.

    I wish all the wildlife in our yard was that awe-inspiring. Right now the rabbits are eating our budding crocus and tulips, and the chipmunks are digging up our flower beds. *sigh*

    1. That 8-point buck certainly would have been a sigh to see! I would have been awestruck for sure! πŸ™‚ Those rabbits sure are pests, aren’t they? We had the same issue in PA. Hopefully with all the gardening work you guys are doing the critters will leave well enough alone, rather than think it’s their own personal Smorgasbord. πŸ˜‰

    1. They really are graceful and beautiful – and happen to be my favorite animal, Harriet! πŸ™‚ Thanks so much for stopping by – hope all is well with you! πŸ™‚

  3. My picture never works. I just don’t get it. πŸ™ Anyway, too cool to have deer come to your doorway. The closest I ever get is coons, squirrels, birds, and stray cats. If I lived a bit closer to the river I’d get ducks & geese,but I’m about 8 blks away. Great pics girlfriend. Thanks for sharing & have a great day! Love to have you stop by today if you would. Thanks. My WW just isn’t taking off for some reason. πŸ™ HUGS.

    1. No worries, Marie – I always have your back, so if the picture doesn’t take at any time, I’ll fix it for ya. πŸ˜‰ I’m hoping we’ll see some deer near our new house – so far it’s a plethora of birds, squirrels, frogs and a pregnant opossum! πŸ™‚

    1. That’s why I did a double-take – I was surprised to see them in such a populated area, not caring about cars going by or crazy people getting out of said cars to take pictures. πŸ˜‰
