I have never seen so many deer in my life as I have recently.
I took all these pictures during the first two days at my mom’s house in the Bay Area.
They were all taken right in front of her house.
The people around here don’t like them.
That is because they tend to eat all their plants and flowers.
But you have to admit, they are beautiful animals.
And it makes me feel good to know that some animals are thriving.
I mean, they must be doing okay if there are this many running around in a neighborhood instead of up in the hills, away from the houses.
Makes me wonder if the wild parts of the Bay Area are so covered by herds of deer that there just isn’t any room for any more.
Maybe I should drive up there and investigate.
I suppose it is more likely that some deer just have more refined taste than other deer.
So they move down to where there is a more eclectic mix of things to eat.
Basically, these are ‘hipster foodie’ deer.
