You Go Doe!

Doe the deer jumping the fence into Betty's yard. I decided to name her "Doe". She has been somewhat of a regular in the yard since just after Christmas. Now spring is here and everything is growing again, so she will be missed. For city dwellers like us it was always a welcome sight to have a bit of Canadian Geographic in the back yard.

The deer were not a daily occurance, but they were regular visitors, usually 2 or 3 times a week, since the real cold arrived. Due to the closeness of the Thames river and Stoneybrook Creek, the neighbourhood is flush with geese, ducks, deer and the occasional wild turkey. I bought the place because I thought the treed yard would be a good place to photograph cardinals, and it is. There is just way more wildlife than I ever could have imagined.
