Deer are naturally curious, but apparently white tail are more wary than mule deer. I have to say, though, that the fellow in the picture was really not too concerned. Despite our use of the camera flash, he was only spooked once. He quickly moved a few feet into the field and stared at us for a moment or two. But he really wanted to graze on our lawn so he came right back.
It just goes to prove how diligent we have to be in this environment to protect our vegetation. I wonder if the deer will be more interested in the yard since the fields lie fallow this year.
Oh . . . and I don't know if Nellie saw the deer or if she just generally didn't like the way Mike and I were acting. She took herself off to the laundry room where she stayed until it was time to get her teeth brushed. KW
