Ladies and Gentleman

These lovely ladies came to call a couple of afternoons ago.  It was just at the time of day when that golden glow falls over our world.  These two are taking aim at the pomegranate fruits that are on our neighbor’s bushes.  I don’t think they could reach them, so that accounts for their disappointed look.

Fortunately they had a protector on guard (see below).    I was able to sneak out onto the deck so I could take pictures with my actual camera without having to use my iPhone or shoot through the double-paned windows in my kitchen.  I don’t think they knew I was there, but right after I snapped about a dozen shots, the wind blew the grasses . . . and they were off.

We heard them again the next night as they jumped into our yard, trotted along the side of the house, jumped the front fence, and went out across the street into another neighbor’s yard.

I know they are pests in many parts of the country, but we are so delighted to see them here, even if they do drain the water pond on a nightly basis!

I added a bit to Animals Spotted.

    Wow! What a great shot. I’ve seen deer in my back yard but never close enough to get pictures like that.

      They are bold, yet skittish, here. I see hoof marks in the gravel in our yard (not much actual grass in Arizona yards) where they have come to call during the night. During acorn season, they are very bold and come right up to the house where the oak tree is and nibble at the acorns on the ground right at the base of our house. There is no window right there, so they don’t see any reflections or into the house, so I guess they feel safe there.

      This is why I make no attempt at gardening. ;->
