Where the deer and antelope play

You never know what you will see living along this creek here at the Sheehan house. Over the years we have had coons in the big elm trees along side the long drive. We have found Javalina chilling in the front yard as if they owned the place. The number of bird species, including fluttering humming birds, is amazing. But among our native guests, the deer are our favorite. They bed down in the side of the creek and graze there as well. The sight of them, walking along, unafraid during the day is always a happy one. This particular guy is like a neighbor to us. He is almost like a mob boss with the other deer. They all wait for him to give the coast is clear sign and then follow him everywhere. They watch his moves. He sets the pace. He is our friend.
