When deer first came to our neck of the woods they were easily frightened and would not come near where people were. They are no longer afraid. They meander through our backyard as if they are family pets, they eat shrubbery if they need a little snack, and if there were still a garden in our outer yard, I’m sure it would be picked clean of everything growing. Still, I see the beauty in these creatures God created. I just wish they still liked the woods better than the highways, byways, and yards.
