Deer! The Huntress spooked them away from outside the back corner of her yard only to have them reappear an hour later over by the old truck.

Ooooh, for me?

There were two that munched the apples I'd thrown for the rabbit, and more pictures can be seen here on my google site: https://goo.gl/photos/Vpja7ZvGPnFaUYb48

The pics aren't great (lighting, focus), but I view these as the equivalent of Polaroids or Instamatic pics anyway. And the deer were constantly moving about: such inconsideration! The smallest one would zoom through the yard, jumping fallen trees and ducking low branches, all-out having fun, while the adults grouped together cautiously and watched all around constantly. In the end, the young'n was all out of breath and panting and just enjoying the thrill of living.

I love seeing elk in our front yard and going through the forest behind. Drives our dog nuts, and it's wonderful watching them ignore him. It's like "Dude, there's a fence between us, and I weigh over ten times what you do. Chill."

My wife sometimes takes the poodle to the observatory with her, that'll happen more and more as the nights get warmer and shorter. Last year she took the dog for a run down the driveway, and there were a bunch of cows around a waterhole, and the dog managed to slip his collar. Of course, not before dragging the leash through some manure. To the delight of the poodle, some of the cows obliged him and ran. But some of the big ones did not: they knew the difference in mass ratios. So he'd stand there, barking at them, and they just stared back like "Just try something - we can stomp you flat!" Aside from that, our pooch's most common encounter is with skunks: he's been sprayed, or experienced a near miss, a couple of times.

Mom has apple and pear trees in back of her house, and in the late summer or early fall, the deer will come just as it gets light to eat fallen fruit.

The cat just stares out the window, with her tail twitching.
