I have a few photos of him!

I learned my lesson and had the tripod ready to go! Notice how the branches have lost the weight of the ice.
Friday, Dec. 19 4:30 p.m.Friday, he surprised me. Hubby was just lying down for his afternoon nap, and I said "If you want to see our buck..." It was so nice of him to arrive just before dusk. I'm thinking it could be Tigger, or his brother, but they are so hard to tell apart. Perhaps, we'll just call him Sir!

|He is a handsome one. They only live 3 -5 yrs, on average.|
This was truly heartwarming, on a damp, cold night!

Bambi was eating, when he began watching something in the forest. We saw a CoyWolf Wednesday, and wondered what he was watching. Bambi deferred to the yearling. This seems to me to have to be a fawn who is a yearling. Sir was so calm, and deferred to the wee one.
Usually, even the mothers whack away if a fawn is in the way! At 0:48 sec. he sniffed at the babe, and walked away.
His buddy came right up to the feeder. He took off and began eating the bird seed in the front yard.
The females just whack away at the young 'uns. Sir was so gentle.
