Doe, a deer, and a hawk

It's been a bad week for deer. Two were struck and killed on our highway, one north and one south of us. Thankfully, the carcasses disappeared rather quickly. We were worried that the little doe that visits us was gone, but she was back the very next day.



We had mail arrive! Cluny and Bryony have been doing art. Isn't that sweet?!


In the backyard, I have zucchini doing really well.


We went off to town. Interesting juxtaposition of people!


Parking is tricky!


Lots of people out enjoying the weather.

Perth's fake cheese!
 The Crystal Palace, where they have the market on Saturdays.

Remember the retirement home building? It's getting there. They took down part of the fence. I've been taking photos during the build.


Look who I tracked down! I could hear it in the trees, and it flew to a nearly perfect spot for a video.

A little closer to home, a caterpillar. I think it is a white-marked tussock moth.

The moths have been busy at night.

If I leave the bathroom light on after dark we get some really interesting looking moths on the window! Not a good environment for taking a photo though as all I get is reflection.

My car was also wounded by a deer. Ugh. I hope the poor thing survived.

I have sent the link of your lanark lifestyles photo post to my daughter who is/will soon be the executive director of the place.
