The day we moved into this house, we were thrilled to see a deer in the garden. They've visited regularily since in varying numbers. These days, what appears to be a family of four, two kids and their parents, drop by a lot. The photo is of the daddy hanging out in front of the house, beside the road, which is unusual; they don't usually come this close. It was a very dark morning, so the flash went off giving the 'possessed by an alien' look in his eyes. Anytime the kids ask me what my favourite animal is I say deer and my sense of awe at seeing these graceful creatures so regularily shows no sign of abating.
