Another photo I've posted to my own LJ, but I couldn't find anything better without going too far back (yes, I was being a bit lazy).

Even when we lived in the suburbs, we would still get the occasional deer passing through the neighborhood... but nothing like what we get here out in the country! They regularly come through and hang out and last year we had a mom with two babies who made a regular circuit along our street (in fact, within days of moving in here, we were sitting out on the deck eating dinner and heard a clacking sound... and were astonished to see the mom and two babies just trotting down the street). This photo isn't as good as I would have liked, because I was snapping it through our front window (I also took several of them while they were grazing in my front yard, just feet from where I was standing, but the reflections off the window really distorted things). I suspect this may be mom and grown-up babies and a friend... or it could just be four other random deer. It's certainly made me change some of my plans for my garden here at the new house! Otherwise I'd run the risk of everything being eaten before I could get to it!

Please excuse the glare and the image from the television in the upper left-hand corner. I was in a hurry and didn't get a chance to shut it off before snapping the shot and didn't notice it was a problem until I was looking through the photos later. Ah, well... live and learn. I hopefully won't make that mistake again.
