Today, we had an unexpected visitor....a little baby deer! My husband was in our backyard, looking around the house to see if there were any wasp nests, as I told him I've been seeing lots of wasps by our back door lately. That's when he spotted a little baby deer, just hanging out in our backyard, by the house, waiting for his/her mama! The funny thing is, last night there was a doe in the neighborhood, and she was actually in our backyard for a while. I guess she liked what she saw because she brought her little one back later! In the 9 years we've lived in this house, I have never seen a deer in our yard before, so this is a very rare occurrence!
The Bachsters were so fascinated by the deer & they were so good about being quiet whenever we snuck in the backyard to take a quick peek. We searched for lightning bugs in the front yard tonight, so as not to disturb our little visitor.
Here are a couple of pictures I took - in the second one, you can see how close we are to the deer. Please don't mind all my weeds!
Have a nice evening!
