    Skimonkey - nice pics & thanks for sharing! :)

    Just wondering if the deer in your immediate area are a new event? North Carolina has one of the largest deer populations in the country and increasing numbers are being reported in western Forsyth County (my town, Winston-Salem, is the county seat). In addition, the black bear population has also been increasing and spreading east from the mountains - sightings have occurred in adjacent counties w/ at least one recent bear killed w/i the city limits by the authorities - NOW, that is returning to nature!

    Our house is surrounded by other homes, so not much large open spaces for deer to roam - our animal visitors are much smaller, rabbits, squirrels, chipmunks, and of course plenty of birds - have even seen some raptors in our trees.

    BTW, your images reminds me of my love for venison, which I'll probably order tomorrow night at one of our local restaurants just up the street! Dave :thumbs:

    Oh my gosh...all of you are making me laugh!! This is great!

    Kay...I am sure that was quite the surprise to see that person sunbathing in the nude! That certainly would have made me shudder also, especially of it was in the morn and without any coffee to prepare myself for something like that!! :)

    no Hedgehogs are little prickly things maybe a bit like a porcupine,they only eat garden pests and don't spoil the garden at all,theyr good to have around.

    Maybe I am mistaken...perhaps our groundhogs are country cousins to hedgehogs. We do not have those here...at least I haven't seen any here yet. They are cute though...almost looks like a porcupine with their snout and also their fur.

    Hi Dave...this is a normal occurrence. We live in a College Town (mine and Ron's Alma Mater)....and our home is situated across from campus. So the deer travel through the open fields and woods to come into or neighborhood daily throughout the year!

    We do love venison also, in fact will be having venison burgers tomorrow! Didn't know about the black bear was even in North Carolina! We have one mounted in our Great Room from a hunt trip up to Northern Canada. However, we do have black bears upstate here...they love their doughnuts and dum dums (lollipops)!

    Thanks for sharing and hope you enjoy your venison dinner, Dave!! :)

    i was weeding one day and almost disturbed his nest,i wasn't sure where they were in the garden,its unusual for them to come out in the day time as they are nocturnal so i snapped a quick pic.
