I said I was going to show you something with this little deer that would delight you, and if this doesn't do it you aren't looking. You might have to click and expand these photos to see them more clearly, but there is something odd going on here.
Can you see it? This is why the little deer didn't want to leave this spot, even though I was jumping around like a monkey. (See that! Even though I'm behind on answering comments here, I enjoy reading them all.) It didn't bother this deer because she had never seen a monkey before anyway. This deer had found a tree that was just full of apples!
As I hopped back and forth, fighting with the bees, and luckily I didn't get stung, I was watching the little deer eat about half a dozen of these apples. This is the first time I know of that anyone has ever captured a scene like this. As far as I'm concerned, this deer is absolutely adorable while it eats it's fill of delicious apples.
When it first wandered toward that tree, I thought it was ready to get away from me. It started looking around the tree, and I thought it just was having trouble getting past it. It was really just looking for a good apple to eat.
It behaved as if I was its friend as it happily ate the apples. It reminded me of a happy puppy dog, as it looked at me while chewing these apples and gulping them down. This was really an amazing sight! I don't know how to describe it any other way. I was really excited to see something like this.
Here's a closeup of the deer's face while it was eating. It's hard to see because of the tall grass, but I wanted you to see it anyway. The whole encounter with my little deer friend just delighted me because the deer just seemed so happy. I hope it gets to stay that way for a very long time.
Okay, I have more deer pictures from the very same day, but I'll wait awhile before showing them to you. I want to keep this encounter special for now. I do have some more interesting encounters for you coming right up though. Maybe not as cute as this dear deer, but they are very interesting indeed!
