I wish that deer would move so I could get a better look at the house.

I love the house, the flowers, and the deer! Seen them when I went snooping over to your website yesterday! I wish my electric meter would break here in the rental, maybe then my landlord will come fix the leaky everything's in this darned box we're in :lol:

Hey, you should see our VA coyotes! Seriously, the first one I saw I thought was a wolf (except we don't have wolves here - I hope).

We have the coyotes in NY and MD, and foxes before them - in Maryland it's because of development, never saw them in years past. In NY, I don't know, but keep an eye on your cats and small dogs.

Eden - we have a yorkie (20+lbs) and a silky terrier (18+lbs) and when we had two coyotes in our yard they didn't come anywhere near our dogs.

Perhaps because their barks are loud and makes them sound larger than they actually are :?

Or maybe because they are confined to the deck (18 x 24) and a small part of the yard to the side of the house that the coyotes didn't want to come too close.

I have a different perspective of deer. Around here it's a nuisance animal. They single handedly consumed nearly all of the hostas in our flower beds. Any vegetable garden is a lost cause without a 10' deer fence. There are dumber than a pile of bricks. I've nearly collided with them on bicycles and been chased when out jogging in the evening. They aren't even afraid of people anymore. I've charged them to chase them away and got within 10 yards before they finally ran all of 50' away. We recently passed a city ordinance allowing a limited amount of bow hunting in city limits. Hopefully it makes a nice dent in the exploding population.


They do make for nice photos... and a sausage, bologna rings, and hamburgers. Yum!
