Just Visiting Or A New Neighbor?

Many times, I’ve shared with you photos of deer in our yard. But Motor Man spotted something unusual yesterday morning and called me quickly (and quietly) to the window.

Of all the deer I’ve seen here through the years, I really can’t recall ever seeing a buck. I moved from window to window, taking pictures, as he walked along the length of our yard.

Although we’ve occasionally seen deer walking in the street, it always strikes us as strange when they do.

I should have called my neighbors to tell them they had company, but then, I would have missed getting these pictures.

What’s odd is, there was a young deer already in the neighbors’ yard (Motor Man spotted that, too), but it wasn’t traveling with the buck.

So the question is: was the buck just visiting our neighborhood? Or is he a new neighbor?  Although I’m sure he’ll wreak havoc on our flowers and shrubs, he’s so beautiful handsome, I’m hoping he’ll stay.
