Beggars Can’t Be Choosers

That old saying is certainly ringing true for the deer near our home offices.
Here is a picture I took off the front porch of my house yesterday evening. The photo
doesn’t show all of them, but 15 deer in total showed up just before nightfall. What
were they eating? Willow leaves and twigs. Yes, things have gotten that bad around
here. We still have about a foot of really hard, crusty snow in the woods and the
deer are really feeling the effects of this long winter.
