What Was She Thinking

My four deers friends came to visit yesterday.
One little deer has been hanging around for 2-3 weeks
She comes alone sometimes & she appears to have
a broken front ankle

Well as her friends wandered on to hunt food, she walked back towards our fence
she jumped over!!!
OMG.. She can't do that!!
We have a dog who was not out , but can be at pottie time

Rich opened the back window and said not mean or loud
"What are you doing"

She promptly turned around & jumped back over the fence

I didn't get a jump pic, but I did get
an inside & outside of the fence picture

My Possum Friend

Did you know, Opossums are Marsupials?? They are!!!!
and this little guy..we call Mr Sanders
The Virginia Opossum is the only North American Opossum.

I was on the deck and tried to get him to look at me.
I talked to him, whistled..he didn't  care, but when hubby 
opened the kitchen window and called to him..he went into the 
bushes to hide.

Sharp Shinned Hawk Back for More

Back again, now here's the food source.I was at the kitchen sink , getting a drink, saw small feathers floating up in the breeze. So I took a look over at the side window and saw THIS eating my Junco. (Click photos to enlarge)

The Sharp Shinned seems to love to eat in our back yard in the winter. This is the second time this week I saw him eating.

After dining, Sharp Shinned flew to sit on the deck to wait for more food.  PIG
