The near deer

Yesterday afternoon I was driving on San Miguel Street just east of Cascade when this deer wandered out of the alley. Of course I stopped the car and got out to take a picture. I stayed a safe distance away from her, because I'm cautious around wildlife -- especially wildlife that's bigger than me! She took one look at me and started trotting in my direction, so I backpedaled to within arm's reach of my car door, thinking, "Oh man I do not want to end up on YouTube!" I don't know if she had murder on her mind, but I wanted to be able to jump in my car if things got weird. Ha! I managed to get a few shots of her as I backed up, then she suddenly changed direction and jumped a fence into someone's yard. Don't worry, she didn't get too close (these photos are all cropped in quite a bit), but it sure was an interesting encounter. She was a beauty!

Poor thing looks lost.

Well, hello there!

This one looks bigger than the white tailed deer we see here.

It actually lives in this neighborhood, Randy. In fact it was probably born within a block or two of where I took the pictures. It's an old neighborhood with big yards and tons of mature trees, and there's a certain amount of wildlife around: deer, racoons, foxes, skunks, etc. It's pretty common to see deer grazing the neighborhood gardens like they're at a salad bar. LOL.
