Breakfast with Deer Friends
This morning, I had the most wonderful surprise while I was doing my morning routine.
I was outside as the sun was beginning to light up the sky in the east. I was not able to see it yet, but I knew any moment it was to appear through the trees in our back yard. I was filling the bird feeders and listening to the “early birds” singing their lovely morning song when I looked up and saw…
the sweetest little girl running towards me as I was bent over filling the feeder that I had placed on the ground. She stopped a few yards away as I slowly lifted the feeder back on its pole and then she walked right up to me and began eating the seed that was on the ground.
I don’t like to allow wild animals, especially deer, to come close enough to me to touch, because I don’t want them running up to humans that might not be so kind and friendly, but… she just came right up to me and started eating less than 2 feet away from me!
The next thing I knew, her sister comes bounding around the corner and straight towards us. She was not as brave and stopped and checked out the situation. By then, I was taking a video with my phone.
You can see what happened in the video below.
At the end of the video, their mommy showed up. I slowly backed away and stood quietly in the cold stillness of the morning as the deer family continued to eat their breakfast snack as the sun began to shine.
