Deer Sentries

An invasion interrupted our sunrise yard time yesterday morning, but our pair of fearless deer sentries kept the perimeter secure.

We went out to our yard yesterday morning for our dawn activities to discover two surprises waiting for us—a fresh dusting of snow and a herd of deer. The light snow was only moderately interesting, but the visiting creatures alerted our fearless pair of deer sentries. And why aren’t we at the fence sounding the alarm? Absolutely nothing to do with their size or number. Nope, the middle of the yard seemed to be a better place to monitor them. That’s our story and we’re sticking to it.
