There were SIX deer playing in the back yard today.

I rarely see them play. They usually just raid the bird feeders and stroll on to the next yard, but the two youngsters were clearly troublemakers. They chased each other around like puppies and annoyed the does until they retaliated. All of a sudden they all froze facing the same direction.

A coyote? Dogs are rarely loose around here. But coyotes aren't much of a threat to the deer until the young are born. Maybe a neighbor cam out to see what the ruckus was.

After a minute or two they all fled, leaping over my bushes and sending the snow flying.

My beautiful blanket of snow has been torn up like I had hosted a football game.
