Wild Wednesday - A Visitor on our Patio

Wild Wednesday - A Visitor on our Patio

This really happened on Tuesday but I saved it for today. Our patio was host to this young deer and when I tried to quietly take the shot, she looked right at me. She was apparently enjoying chomping on some of our plants out there.

Young Deer

After a few minutes of staring at each other, she bounded off. I hope she comes back soon.

Cute little one. They have been visiting our yard and eating all my wife's plants. She is not happy.

Thanks for the salad bar do you have any ranch dressing?  Deer and gardens aren't the best combination but they are still hard to resist when they look at you with those big brown eyes.

What a great shot!  We don't have critters that big in my neighborhood, more like squirrels and the occasional raccoon. Thanks for sharing!

Hi Toni,

That's a great shot. We used to get a lot of deer in the yard when we were living in Michigan.

We still get a few here but not as many. They jump our fences like nothing.

Have a great day in New Port Richey.

Best, Clint McKie

Toni: You get some of the neatest photos of animals grazing or relaxing in your yard. I see an occasional lizard in mine.  HA.

Toni, Although adorable to look at, they have destroyed Larry's veggie garden this year!

Looks like the deer is just as mesmerized looking at you as you are of her. Her ears are so large compared to her face.

How cool, Toni.  Congratulations on getting a picture.  I have seen them in my yard, but by the time I get my camera the deer is our of range.  Love the frame and signature,

Toni, We like watching the deer, but we don't like them eating our flowers or jumping out in front of our car!

ah ha, my neighbor had 3 of these beauties in his front yard yesterday, not afraid of anything.

Good morning Toni -

No critters in our yard except for the occasional coyote jumping the 8 ft. fence for a drink from the backyard pond.  Thanks for adding the Wild Wednesday link.  I wasn't aware of the group but have now clicked over and joined in the fun. 

Hope you and Criag have a good day in real estate and more!

Toni: My gosh, that looks like a scene right out of a Disney movie!  Have you ever thought about putting your photographs together in a collection, like a coffee-table book?  I always enjoy your pictures- Thanks for sharing!  :)

As we know from deer in the Sierra Nevada foothills, they can be serious plant chompers.  Sometimes residents have a love-hate relationship with them, because of it!  Yet, looking at the eyes and the little spots of that critter makes it difficult to have any mortal disdain against them. . .Especially when they are in someone else's yard:-)

Awww...I'm sure she was just as curious about you as you were of her.  Thanks for sharing!

Owls, deer, .... I do think I live in a too densely populated area!! One would never find either one of those in my backyard in Central Pinellas County. Pasco County and New Port Richey have tons of wildlife to offer, what a great photo!

So very cool!

What a beautiful photo, and it looks like you two connected.  They are definitely chompers of plants and like Myrl said, they are adorable when they are in someone else's yard.  Happy Wednesday, A

Hi Toni,

What a lovely surprise and a great photo. I think deer are so beautiful and graceful.

Wow, everyone likes deer! Yes, they eat my plants but I don't worry about it, I just plant more ;) Thank you all and have a great day.

Tanja - we live across from Starkey Preserve and we have a huge wooded area behind us. Lots of interesting critters.

Hello Toni,  Great shot, was he looking to come inside and check your place out?

Will - could be :)

Posted by Toni Weidman, 20+ Years Selling Homes in New Port Richey, FL (Sailwinds Realty) over 8 years ago

What a beautiful little visitor you had!!  He's definitely checking out your place.

Posted by Kerrie La Guardia, Let it Rain! (ActiveRain, Community Manager) over 8 years ago

What a great shot. Sorry about your plants. We also have to deal with our deer that enjoy eating plants and flowers.

Posted by Carl Winters over 8 years ago

The deer gave you a nice pose, maybe she knows you're taking her picture... he he he... Very Lovely!

Posted by Regina P. Brown, M.B.A., Broker, Instructor (MBA Broker Consultants) over 8 years ago

Hi Toni,  That deer really got up close to your house!  Nice of her to stand still for the photo --  she must know she's photogenic!

Posted by Dianne Goode, Realtor/Broker (Raleigh Cary Realty) over 8 years ago
Hi Toni, These are sweet looking animals and while they can be a pest with certain types of plants, it is hard to not want them to visit and have them repsond to " OK, Look up here and say Cheese". :-) Too cute.
Posted by William Johnson, Retired Real Estate Professional (Retired) over 8 years ago

Great shot Toni. She must be a model. Ready for a pictorial. hahahaha, maybe she'll visit you soon.

Posted by Mike Warren (Real Estate) over 8 years ago

Toni I find the deer are now rather fearless, they look at you as if to say, you are invading my space.  Lovely shot.

Kerrie - thanks!

Carl - it's okay if she eats my plants; I don't mind.

Regina - I think she must have known.

Dianne - she does look like she's posiing :)

William - she seemed to know what I was doing even though I was inside and she was out.

Mike - I'm sure she'll be back; we see them a lot.

Jennifer - the ones we have are very skittish. They will take off if you move too fast.

Thanks everyone.
