A Deer and Her Yearling

Today, between three and four PM my wife and I were astonished to see a deer and her offspring walking down the blacktopped bicycle/walking trail, formerly a railroad track property, that sets immediately off the back of our property.  We were unable to get pictures today but will be on the alert beginning tomorrow to  get some shots.  We have not seen deer on or near our property for over two years even though we live less than a mile from a Nature Center that has quite a herd.  You should know we live in the city and have, in the past, had deer come right up to our back door…actually knocking bird feeders with their nose’s or antler’s to get at the seeds set out for the birds in the winter months…construction of the bicycle/walking path probably scared them off these past couple years…more later.
