It's a shame that such beautiful and awe-inspiring pictures have to lead to a discussion about septic systems.




I thank you each day for these glorious photos -   regardless of what else follows.

I think Buckley is standing sentry.  He is looking over his loved ones, including Mama Wick.

@MamaWick    Looks like Buckley gets enough to eat.  His ribs are not showing like the females do... I worry about them and Tracy, the one that has a bad leg...

I'm afraid Buckley is going to start being a naughty rambunctious boy shortly.


I hope he enjoys every moment of it.

@stuyvesant. Yep...around the first of November and then I will stay out of their way.

Once the rut begins, if those bucks see their reflections in the glass on your windows and back door, you may very well wind up with some broken glass.

@MamaWick  Thanks for the information re your septic tank system.  It truly makes your lawn a beautiful backdrop for your magnificent herd.   

The shade must provide a cool respite for them.  Be careful when opening your door, you may have some unannounced visitors looking around-the deer of course. 

Have you had any problems of misbehavior during the rut?  Hoping all stay safe. 

Woofs, of course for Princess Cricket.

My goodness, they seem tame. How close do they let you get to them? They are beautiful. I have an very large dog bowl that I keep cleaned out and water in for the deer. I am going to start putting the water in a big container for them like you do. DUH.
