Forgive the very tired pun, but I could not resist.
I live in a suburb about a mile from the Philadelphia city line. My house has a large back yard ending at a creek. Deer and other wildlife are a common sight and at this time of year the deer are hungry and have no fear of coming up close to the house.
They are around at all times of year – but now is when we see them the most. There have been as many as eight outside at one time. It’s something to think you are alone at home and then glance out the window to find yourself being observed.
