Oh, Deer!

Ever since we first scoped out our lot, we’ve seen a lot of wildlife in the area. From turkeys to deer to tree frogs, there’s all kinds of stuff out there!

Lately, we’ve seen twin fawns hanging out in our backyard. But this past weekend, we got a pretty close-up view of them, and figured out who’s been nibbling at our landscaping!

This was taken from our side yard – I was having a staring contest with them! They were only about 15-feet away from me!

Feathered Friends

My mom has always liked hummingbirds, and she has multiple feeders around their backyard. So it was no surprise when she gifted me a feeder for my birthday in June. I finally got the feeder outside last week, and ever since, it’s been the hottest hangout in the neighborhood!

My husband and I spent a good deal of time this past weekend watching 3 different hummingbirds hang out / dive-bomb each other on the feeder! I managed to snap a few shots with my iPhone, but I wish the feeder were closer to our patio door so I could get some more detailed pictures.

I think this first little gal is my favorite. She looks like she’s still got some fluffy baby down feathers:

Maybe I should get another feeder, but I think they’d still dive-bomb each other. It’s pretty funny to watch them zip around the yard. But also a little dangerous if you’re outside – they zoomed right past my head a few times!
