Today, while I was waiting for someone to show up for an appointment, I had a nice little wildlife show. Here's the stage.
Densely packed cottages around a lake. Please note the pile of logs strategically placed to obstruct my best view. But it will give you an idea of how close to the house this action is. A doe shows up, looking for something to eat. Is she already licking her chops in anticipation?
Need I mention that the snow is deep?
So she's rooting around, trying to find something tasty that might be hidden, when a man comes out on the deck of the cottage. Does she bolt? Not on your life. He has carrots. One by one, he throws them over the railing. She grabs one. Then, from the deeper woods, an interloper shows up.
There was some pushing and shoving and snorting. A lot like a school yard brawl. Almost all behind the log pile. Of course.
So, one deer got three carrots, and this deer got one. Can you tell which is which? I can't. But I'm pretty sure the daily appearance of carrots is expected.
