A small herd of deer like to hike up and down our alley.
I snapped this picture last week after a snowfall. These two teenagers strolled across the front yard looking for food while I worked on my truck in the garage driveway. They munched on an evergreen bush and tossed occasional sideways glances at me.
I tried to get closer but they became wary and strolled to the other side of a nearby house.
A short time later a neighbor walked down the alley. He was pushing his two children in a three-wheel baby carriage.
“Beware of the deer,” I told him.
“Yes, we see them all the time,” he said. “They like to come around early on garbage day.”
I guess Duluth deer are just raccoons with long legs and hooves.
