Happy Halloween to you! In honor of the holiday, I thought I’d take a few photos of the critters I’ve seen recently at the house.
I have missed seeing the deer in my new house. At my old one, I would see them passing by at twilight across my neighbor’s front lawn. But when I recently left a horseback riding lesson, while walking to my car, I thought a big dog was scampering past me. When my eyes adjusted to the darkness, I saw an entire family of deer a few yards away from me. How glorious for me! As I quietly talked with them, they stood there listening intently. It was such a precious moment! They even patiently waited while I grabbed my phone and took a few photos. This was the best photo of the group I got, although I’m sorry it’s so grainy. It was dark out, but I could see them and their eyes twinkling in the night.
I love deer. I’ve written about them before in my blog. I love all animals, even little Mr. Mousey who hopefully lives outside only. You know, I have two cats in my home whom I adore. Hopefully one day, I will even get a big dog, but that will have to wait for now. Maybe I won’t be able to get a dog, but perhaps someone will share theirs with me so that we can play fetch and romp with enthusiasm outside.
There’s something about animals that I adore. Sometimes, I think they are better than humans for they are more honest and loyal. The older I’ve gotten, the more attuned I seem to be getting with animals, especially wildlife. I wonder if it’s the Pisces in me?
I hope you have a lovely day.
