Our 4 bucks worth...Sir, and the maître d'

Seriously, I think we actually have 5 bucks. There was one with teeny antlers. Like this. He'd be #5, but sans name tags, or scars, wht can a woman do? Sir we can distinguish by his behaviour. He's a loner and likes the frozen bird feeder!

In the front yard, #1 buck 'Sir'... he's been around for a month. Sir comes around on his own, no friends. It's unusual, as we seldom see the bucks, except for Tigger. We never see them in the summer. Usually, we only have the does and their babes.

Sir: "Any black cats here?"
"She didn't top up my feeder!"
"This one is a bit low, too."

In the side yard...a trio. They hang out together, although Big Daddy won't let the 4th buck hang out with their apparent trio. Big daddy is the boss.
#2 Big Daddy
#3 He's a bit smaller.

I find myself wondering what the deer and the turkey think of each other!

Don't you just love those expressive faces? I'll be posting my buckaroos before too long. :) Gorgeous pics, Jenn.

Jenn thanks for asking about my sister. She had surgery for 3 fractures in her right ankle, now full of titanium. It will be 3 month re-hab, and the left ankle is badly sprained. It seems the house she was at has a step down into a sunken living room made of concrete flooring and no visible divide. If you can believe my poor mom with her memory loss was able to advise that she get an 'au pair' helper! I think she is right.

What joys to have such visitors Jenn! Big Daddy may be absolutely the correct name - although that would suggest a harem, rather than a collection of bucks; perhaps he next in 'order', the prince in waiting as it were? 'Sir' could be Feet - making sure he gets a surfeit of feedstuffs!! The two followers... Nibble and Crunch...

&*> Be warm... YAM xx
