About Today’s Photo:
A caught a shot of this very fat and healthy looking doe right over by our chicken/duck coop yesterday morning. She was munching on corn cobs that we’d tossed in the tall grass. We have little doubt that she might be one of the ones responsible for recent vegetable garden pillaging that has left us bereft of fine crops beans, peppers and even tomatoes!
