She did try to take some pictures of her outdoor Christmas lights, but they are blurry and out of focus. Sigh. These are the only ones that aren't too bad, but they aren't very good, either....
She was in her kitchen last night and something moved outside her kitchen window. It startled her, because she knew her dog and cats were all sleeping in the living room. She looked out the window and saw a deer eating birdseed off her deck! The woodpeckers that frequent her bird feeder occasionally go a little berserk and fling birdseed out of the feeder like they
(edited to add some really poor photos)
This was taken last night.....
She came back this morning with her young'un:
"If I could figure out how to reach that........"
"Uh oh..... busted!"
"I can see you..... can you see us?"
I like the reflections in the top photo. Do we need to send the Christmas Spirits after you?
He was right on the deck? Amazing what they will do, too bad you didn't get a shot of that.
Deer on deck! Deer on deck!
(I've had 2 cups of coffee so far)
He must have liked your Christmas lights and was looking for the tree. ;)
I've felt that way before. Go minimal, but do it soon!
Thanks for the pics. At least you're doing something Christmas-y.
Reb - oops - I didn't word that correctly! He was standing in the flowerbed, eating off the deck! Sorry for the confusion!
kcinnova - I probably will do some decorating this week. Really.
Leah - yes, the lights do help get me in the mood for Christmas.
Standing in the flowers and eating off the deck is still very close, he must have been very hungry indeed.
If you decide not to do a tree, how about a nice table centerpiece? A mini tree or similar. Lots of fun, and less work.
messymimi - yes, that would be a good idea! (must get my creative juices working....)
Always good to see the deer up close.
Probably a good thing he wasn't up on the deck, he would have figured out how to get seed right from the feeder. Good photos.
Oh dear! They look like they're posing. How cute! I'm with you on the Christmas spirit idea! I just can't get into it either.
Why don't you feed them something better? give them some apples or something. How about some prized plants?
Awww lucky you to have such lovely visitors and such considerate guests to clean up after the birds like that.
I like the way the reflections on the porch roof make ripples like upside down water.
The birds are just expressing the Christmas spirit, sharing with the deer.

Look how fuzzy the deeries are!
Your lights aren't really fuzzy are they? :-)
June - the lights are fuzzy from the snow and frost covering them!
Those are GREAT pictures! I love that the deer was comfortable enough to climb up onto the deck! Isn't wildlife amazing? You have a gorgeous porch, by the way, and your lights are very pretty.
