Single Photos-Mouse And Deer

This young deer in above photo was just down below my bedroom window. I tried to open the window quietly but it didn't work. He ran off so fast. But before I did that I was shining the flashlight on him. That's how I know it was a young one. Chubby fella too. But I worry about him being that close. He walked over that wired rock retainer wall to get down there. He could very easily get his hoof caught in the fencing. I hope I don't have to worry about him all the time now..Ha! Ha! I waited till he was over near the front area before I opened the bedroom window because I knew if he ran, he'd run the other way where it was safe. And he did. Then he stopped and looked at me from the other side of the wall. That's when I opened the bedroom window and tried to get a photo but he ran back up the hill out back. And all I got was this photo. Better than nothing I guess.

Can you spot the little mouse in the middle of all those seeds? He sure is in his glory! I was on a stool with the top part of my window open to flash him. He couldn't quite figure out where I was.

That must be one very happy mouse. Deer are very hard to convince to stay close. the only way to do it is to somehow convince them that they're more dangerous than you. You got good shots of both of the animals. A deer at night is something I haven't sen yet myself.

My first time to see a deer paying a visit to your little zoo.

Can I consider a mouse in the list as well?

Of course Rain! A mouse is always part of my zoo. I love to watch them scurrying about also. As long as they are outside...ha ha ! I've even had a few rats through the years but I'm sorry to say that I had to get rid of them. They would kill my chipmunks.

At least you got a record photo of the deer, how lovely to have it visit you, if only fleetingly.

I see I'm not the only one with a little mouse on their blog, they are sweet as long as they stay outside :)
