Just one this time

I happened to glance out the kitchen window early yesterday afternoon and saw another fawn. This one was in the shadows between the evergreens and lilac bushes. As I was looking at it, I also noticed a couple of turkeys right next to it. They wandered off, and then I saw a cat there, too! They must've been having some kind of conference.

I grabbed the camera and decided to see if I could get a shot or two. Lo and behold, this one wasn't afraid of me, either! I got about 10 feet from it before it decided to trot off a ways. 






It was alone, so I don't know if it was one from the group I photographed before or not. It might have been, because early that evening, just as Courtney and her mom were leaving, there were two out by the garden. We encouraged Courtney to walk out and see how close she could get to them. She did get pretty close, but then she just couldn't resist doing a little jump to see if they'd run, and of course they took off. I had wanted her to try and pet them, but she might have been just a bit afraid to get too close. Sure wish I'd had the camera out there at the time, but it was getting a little dark for photos, anyway.

I could not have resisted the temptation to reach out and try to pet them! Cute flower eaters that they are

Same here! They're irresistible. Unless you're 8, I guess. ;)

Aw man. Courtney missed out on making new friends.

Grandma G said...

She sure did, the stinker! :) Her loss.

All those animals must have been discussing some important matter... maybe how your garden is an amazing spot for free food? :P

Deers (and fawns) are such gracious creatures, but they are still kinda big when compared to an 8 years old. Maybe that's why she was hesitating?

The fawn and turkeys might have been agreeing about that, but probably not the cat! :D

(Graceful!) ;) Yeah, she may have been intimidated by their size. They're bigger than cats, or even her dog. ;)
