My World Tuesday - Visitor

The pasture where we keep our horses boarders a large turf farm. The farm is no longer in business but a local hay farmer does cut and bale the grass. Since it's been raining so much, it hasn't been cut and is about waist high. There are 2 large fields separated by a tree line and the old farmhouse and barns. Lots of wildlife call this home including various types of birds, foxes, groundhogs and a herd of whitetail deer. We usually only see the deer at dusk but yesterday we noticed a darker spot among the seed heads of the grass. The only reason we spotted her is that we are on a hill and had a higher vantage point. This small doe very carefully made her way across the field. You could just about make out her ears as she turned to see what was going on. We were surprised to see only one deer as they are usually not solitary and where's there one there's almost always more. There are very plentiful around the area and can be a bit of a nuisance but I still think they are very pretty to watch.

These are so peaceful and a peer at a deer in the wild is always a bonus.
