As the harshness of winter continues, the neighborhood deer become a more common sight as they more often frequent the places where they might find food. I took this photo through our kitchen window. The deer was coming to try to score some food at the suspended wood where I put peanut butter for the birds.
Beside the peanut butter log, the deer visit the bird’s sunflower seed feeder and our compost pile. Even though I dump our food scraps on the compose pile every day, by the following day about all that is left are the egg shells.
Kona, who has adopted the habit of watching out of the window, freaks out and breaks into a barking spasm upon seeing the deer in the yard, so we usually know when they are out there.
