An unexpected guest


I was in the shower yesterday morning, when I heard Bubba and Mini suddenly howling and barking like someone was breaking in the house.

It was early, so I knew it couldn't be anyone I knew at the door, but because they were losing their minds, I thought I'd better check it out.

I jumped out, threw on my robe and saw this....


It turns out that I had an unexpected breakfast guest.





"Oh hi."


Yes, apparently deers love birdseed too.

That was when I decided it might be a good idea to move the birdseed onto a table inside the porch walls.

She's awful cute with that seed on her nose though, isn't she?

  4. Oh how cute! A deer buffet. :)

    We know that our bird seeds have turned into a raccoon and opossum buffet before but we don't have deer here in our area. I know they can be a nuisance but I still love them.

  8. They are so cute! They get outside my front window eating the grass all the time and Charlie just twitches like crazy.

  9. Yikes. I know she's cute and all, but I don't think I'd want a deer that close to my door.

  12. I can't believe she didn't run away with the dogs barking and camera flashing...she looks like she's posing! Must've had some really good birdseed in there! ;)

  13. Too cute! I love deer, they are just adorable. I always leave my old produce (greens, carrots, lettuce, etc) in the back 40 for the deer. They always come and eat it :) What's funny is they wouldn't come to my garden last year, I think because it's too close to the house. But our back fence is a good 100 yards from the house, they'll go there to eat. Good for my garden! Hope you're having a great weekend Rue!

  14. oh my!

    it seems a little sad though, that she is so unafraid of humans...... another season and she will not be safe....

  15. How adorable! Very nice shots Rue! She's definitely not camera shy! :) My grandmother has had a few deer walk down the access road that runs along her back fence. They stop to pose, and continue on their merry way! Have a wonderful weekend!

  16. How sweet! She should be able to find lots of snacks in the wild soon, but I suppose the birdseed was just too tempting. We don't have any deer visiting us on a busy street, but I'm enjoying watching the antics of our resident squirrels....until they start digging out my flowers, that is. Have a great weekend!

  18. Who knew deer ate birdseed? She's absolutely beautiful, and I'm so glad you were able to take pictures to share with us.

  19. Oh, breathtaking! I could stare at that photo all day! I love when deer head out into the pasture behind our house. There's something so serene and peaceful about them. Thank you for sharing.

  20. Nice shot - very cute indeed. I've had deer in my backyard as well, but they preferred to eat my very young and tender shrubs...
