    backyard visitor

    We had a backyard visitor this morning. Get them all the time but I caught a cute pic today.
    The ticks have been especially bad this year. It looks like this fawn may be blinded in the right eye from the ticks. Sad.

    Frank looks like she may have run into a barbed fence or something. Never seen ticks work over a deer that fast from birth.
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Up close I can see the ticks, hundreds of them. Makes me sick. It's mother's head looks deformed from all the ticks she has.

    Maybe you can feed her some tick medicine like the kind given to dog in there food. Put it in apple sauce. She will eat it.

    Dave, our backyard looks like a cattle pasture with all the deer grazing (I know, really browsing). I'm sure another deer would get it first. I can't treat every deer in the county.

    Frank do you do any repellant in your yard? Aren't those little deer ticks the Lyme agents? Cattle soon learn a rub is their friend, wonder what would happen if you put one up for the deer? Hmmmmmm, nothing illegal about hunting over a rub is there???

    Maybe you need a large group of chickens. They eat every insect around.

    Interesting thought.
    Shooting one in my yard wouldn't be hunting. It would be harvesting. I would have to be mighty hungry before doing that.

    Great shot Frank, but what a poor little critter. I usually show LOML the backyard wildlife photos that get posted here (she remembers Brent and Sharon as "the people with wild horses in their yard"), but I think I'll have to pass on showing her this one.
