What's At The Bottom.................

By KarenFB
..............Of Your Garden?

At the bottom of mine were these two Roe Deer! They were munching away on the ivy that grows over the fence!

I spotted a head from the sitting room, so dashed up to the bedroom with the camera. Took a few images through the window, but decided the glass wasn't that clean, so slowly opened it. They couldn't have cared less! After a while they decided to move on, it was then I realised the one on the left had hurt its back leg and was only running on three!

I don't usually get to see them so clearly, usually they are off at the slightest movement/sound! I enjoyed their company, I hope you do too!

What a wonderful find in your garden, Karen, though you might be losing some of your shrubs now that they have discovered it's a good place to come and feast Grin Super captures. Carol

Splendid capture here you are so lucky to have and see these in the garden, it must be hard for them to find food in this snow.

Wonderful to have these visitors, so closeTongue

Perhaps only a sprain caused by the hard ground

A great encounter and it must be very exciting to have them in your garden Smile. They're probably searching for your roses (a favourite food) under all that snow.

Thanks everyone! Grin

Justin: They regularly come to the 'garden' bit - we have no fences as such, so our 'garden' sort of sprawls into the rest of the farm!! Smile As for rose bushes, I only have one (I'm not a very good gardener) and that one looks dead! I have seen them taking great chunks out of the Hebes though!
