My son’s been telling me about this guy for awhile now, and I finally got a few shots of him wandering around the backyard a few minutes ago.
He’s got small antlers, a little hard to see in this picture. He stopped and looked at me for a minute when he heard me up on the back deck (second story of the house, so I was perfectly safe) and then slowly wandered off down the little path you can see behind him. We’re theorizing he’s living down in what used to be our garden area, but since the backyard has been let go it looks like Mother Nature is reclaiming it (no doubt the neighbors are furious). He’s bigger than you can tell from the photos, I was roughly 50-60 feet away when I took these.
