Normally I see deer in my neighbourhood down the block, closer to the river, but sometimes I see them wandering around the streets too and despite their destructive visits in the summer I still love to see them.
Out our dining room window we have clear evidence of the deer joining the squirrels, rabbits and birds at our feeder during the night.
That twig sticking up at ground zero is our lone rose bush that was here when we moved in - perhaps it is not ideal to have hung the feeder immediately above it, poor thing, but it is pink in my Moon Garden so it is eventually going to have to go, one way or another.
The critter in the photo? Look closely and you will see a bird about to alight on the feeder. Can you spot it?
