Oh Deer...

This little baby was hanging out in my yard all morning. 
I called A Wildlife Refuge that told me his mama was probably looking for food and would eventually return. They told me to leave him alone...I did, but it was very hard.
I hope he didn't mind the picture taking.

Unfortunately the hours passed without a trace of mama. He laid there for hours in the rain. I'm having some work done in the yard and all the activity seemed to make him a little nervous and shaky.

He finally ran off, and now I'm sitting here hoping he's fine, reunited with his mama, and munching on a neighbor's evergreens. There's a reason I don't live in the country...I'd be that woman on the news living with assorted wildlife in her home.
I just love four-legged furry creatures.

He's back...hiding in the neighbor's bushes.
Hopefully mama will return for him...

No sign of him..I'm choosing to believe
he's where he should be...


  1. got so close!! He's adorable, but I, too, hope his mama comes and gets him. Keep us updated!

  2. No sign of him this morning...I'm hoping mama returned!

  3. What a LOVELY creature of nature!!! I'm sure he is just fine :)
