Daisy, the deer, the wild turkeys

Can you see Daisy in video in the snow? Unfortunately, she under the play bar. The deer is staring at her.

Curiosity may have killed the cat,
but Daisy is simply non-pussed with the deer!
Gotta love them! It's beyond me how a little white cat can cause the deer to focus such attention, but she does. Not only that, but the wild turkeys watch her like hawks.

The turkeys and deer were at the bird feeder and Daisy wanted to climb the white pine tree. So she did! Everyone scattered. She didn't even look at them. No eye contact. Totally unconcerned. They, of course, have survived by being flighty.

You know that animals are governed by the fours Fs:
Fight, flight, food, fornication.

Daisy is a camo cat in the snow.

Amazing how both the turkeys and deer took off. I guess if you don't know something best to run.

I've never seen deer and turkeys together in the wild. Amazing video.

It's a pity I can't play the video :(
I agree with cat's curiosity.

Great winter camouflage, Daisy! How neat to see the deer and wild turkeys in your yard.

Hilarious, those large animals fleeing from Daisy, who wasn't paying them any attention anyway.
And I love the photo of the blue jay and the cardinal. How lucky you are with your wildlife, so colourful and interesting.
I was also looking at your chart of flu statistics. It seems strange that Alberta, with a comparatively small population, should be right up there with Ontario. I know there have been more than 10 deaths in Alberta, too.
I'm so glad I always get the flu shot. So easy now that the pharmacies do it. Again, I have to wonder about the high flu rate here in Alberta and it does cross my mind to think about some anti-science politicians.
Newfoundland seems disproportionately high, but a great many Newfoundlanders work in Alberta. Otherwise, it should be down with PEI.
Strange.
Hugs to the cats, especially ferocious Daisy.
Luv, K

That's what captured my attention, Kay, the disparities in numbers of cases and provincial populations:
ONT: 12.8m
ALBERTA: 3.6m
They say that Canadian vaccination rates are 40%, perhaps that, too differs across the provinces.
