My close encounter...with the deer

Friday evening I was laying on the couch (with a bad headache) waiting for Richard to get home. I saw the deer out of the corner of my eye coming across the street. I grabbed my camera, some apples & carrots and headed outside. They were in the lot behind us by the woods. I called to "mama" and she came right to me! I was shocked and happy. The 2 little ones stayed back. I cut up the apples & the carrots and fed them to her. I had a heck of a time cutting them up, feeding her and taking pictures all at the same time! But I think I did pretty good! LOL

She loved the apples I was feeding her.
I think this picture is so sweet! She kept nudging my hand for more food.
She's checking on her babies. I threw some apples to the babies! Aren't her ears adorable?!
Eating a carrot out of my hand.
A stupid loud car scared her and her babies off.

That's cool! Maybe she'll come back now that she knows you have food! Maybe you should have some pre-cut stuff for them!
