Deer in the Yard, the Winter Edition

We kicked off the new year with a small herd of deer wandering through the backyard. Somehow I haven’t shared any deer pictures on the blog before?! There are quite a few deer in the neighborhood. It’s not uncommon to see them out and about, particularly at dusk. In 2016, I fortunate enough to snap pictures of deer right in the yard a few times. If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen the couple shots of the doe and fawn we saw over the spring and summer (here and here). I didn’t share any fall deer snaps here, though.

There were three deer wandering through this time. They stopped for a few minutes to graze. I’m not sure what they were eating, to be honest. There’s not much growing this time of year! But they found something to nibble, and then they moved along to the neighbor’s yard. I’m a city girl and have never lived anywhere this remote before, so it’s still quite the novelty to see so much wildlife in the yard. (We even had a fox visitor this fall!)

  1. Great shots! We see them quite a bit in our area, but they don’t come this close to the house very often.
    Hope your new year is off to a great start!

    1. Happy New Year, Edi! So far so good this way. I hope 2017 has gotten off to a good start for you, too. Most of the time, the deer hang out on the outskirts of the neighborhood here, too.

  2. In November we frequently spent time in the evening watching out of the neighbor’s kitchen window for deer! They have a big corn feeder out back and we’d wait to see how many arrived and if they’d get along or start competing for attention.
