We have a sweet doe who is a frequent visitor to our backyard. She is almost always by herself even though there is a herd of 8 or so that roam through our neighborhood at various times. She has a bum leg. It makes me sad. I think the other deer make fun of her and don’t let her play in their (rein)deer games. So I can not get too upset when she comes to eat out of my birdfeeders. This particular evening she actually let me get fairly close to her as I went out and sat on the deck probably 15 feet away from her. I hope she makes it. She has kind eyes.
