Peaceable Kingdom

Mourning Doves and Deer
I'm always amazed how different species coexist so peacefully in nature...why can't mankind do the same?

Check out how the deer just appear out of the background of trees here... feeding the birds and deer is one of our winter hobbies. Now that hunting season is over, they start to settle down and appreciate the handouts. The deer come running when they hear the coffee can of corn. We have no interest in taming them to eat from our hand... even though we have names for some of them... Fatty, The Twins, White Eye, Broken Wing, Mamma and Osama the tunneling Red Squirrel. They need to stay wild in order to survive.

I know I haven't posted for awhile, it took me that long to upload this video here, LOL. I haven't photographed any of my stitching but did manage to make most of my Christmas gifts this year. I look forward to starting out fresh with a better new year.

Hmm...I lost count at 13! How many were there? How fun! Hope they don't eat your garden in the summer though. Glad to know you've been busy; same here. Take care.

Enchanting sight-I'm sure they enjoy the food hand outs! Have a wonderful Christmas season Jane, and here's hoping the New Year is brighter.

That was magical, how they all just materialized...and it seemed like there were many more just beyond our sight.
Nice work getting that loaded on here for us to enjoy. Thanks...
...and Merry Christmas!

Love the video of the deer! I showed it to my husband and as we watched it, I would occasionally point to something in it and oddly, the deer skittered away each time I pointed at them! Just funny timing....
