Wordless Wedesday

Camouflaged 

There is a ravine behind our house and deer can be seen there quite often.  This doe has been living in the area for at least the past 4 years.  How do I know?  If you look closely you will notice that she is carrying her left front leg.  I have no idea how she has survived on three legs for this long.  The wooded areas, not far from our home are filled with deer hunters in November.  Somehow this little lady has managed to "dodge a bullet".  Even more impressive is the fact that there are bobcats and coyotes in the area and a less than agile doe would seem to be an opportunity for them to take her down.  Still, she finds a way to keep on keepin' on!  I have all of the respect in the world for this little survivor.

  5. Hooray for the survivor. Now if she stops coming around you will worry about her. I hope you have discovered that someone new has picked up Ruby Tuesday. My post for yesterday links to it.
