Quiet Beauty ~

Good Morning Friends & Folk!!!
and a happy Sunday to you all....

as I was opening the windows in the keeping room this morning,
I was shocked to see this little visitor so close to the farmhouse!

she was quietly munching on some of the grass & weeds under the backyard bird feeder...

she saw me, and knew I was watching her ~
but they are so used to me that I don't think they fear me at all.

she is so skinny! she looks like a yearling to me, and I didn't see any other deer with her
(that didn't mean her momma was not watching from just beyond the woods though)

she's skinny because all of the vegetation has dried up due to the drought we've had.
thankfully, 2 days of rain has turned the ground green again,
and I hope she gets the nourishment she needs...

I think she is one of the most beautiful creatures we have the pleasure to share our woods with...

~ just look at those soulful eyes ~

Hoping your day is filled with random beauty
...and quiet, creative moments ~

Blessings from the farm,

Lori ~ I too love 'my' deer and keep a bucket of water constantly filled, particularly during dought. They know I keep the bucket full and will often see a herd come together to drink and eat the grass and tree leaves.

I used to keep a salt lick out for them but then learned that the salt can kill a young deer so havent put out a salt lick since all neighboring mothers bring their young to drink from the water too.
