We have a small pond in our yard that supplies drinking water for the birds, squirrels, raccoons and the neighbor’s cats. We’ve especially enjoyed the raccoons when they bring their babies to the watering hole. Our next door neighbor did not share our feelings and have recently diminished the population dramatically by setting out live traps.
But, before she did that I managed to take some pictures of the families while they were enjoying the water. The clicking sound of my camera would send them scurrying off as soon as I took my first picture. This is the only session I was able to get.
One afternoon I noticed this deer in my neighbor’s front yard. It, too, was bothered by the clicking noise but did not turn and run right away. It was about 60 feet away and I was able to snap several good shots.
Then, I turned to leave and discovered another deer standing ten feet away that had been watching me the whole time while I was taking the other one’s picture. Yikes!
