This morning The Old Lady looked out and saw one of the rats that has been eating her flowers and grapevines, etc. He is a nice looking "rat with antlers". An eight point buck.
Took this picture thru the storm door on the back door. Didn't want to scare him away as he was only about 15 feet away and I wanted to get a clear picture. I usually don't see bucks around, just the does, but this guy hasn't been bothered here and I guess he feels pretty safe in coming around in daylight.
Here he is browsing on an apple tree. Or as The Old Lady would say, "Giraffe eating the acacia tree". All the apple trees have all the lower branches stripped of leaves.
