A Buck for Breakfast

It was time for breakfast, and I was ready for my toast and cocoa, but one glance out the kitchen window told me we had a surprise guest. No need to set an extra place at the table though because this guest was huge, way too large to take a chair at the table…and he was actually standing in the middle of our backyard, staring at me!  So instead of inviting him to join us inside, I picked up my camera and quietly opened the door, hoping to capture a few action shots of our unexpected visitor. To my delight, he didn’t dash away as I fully expected he would, so I eased the door closed behind me and stood outside, snapping pictures  in the chilly, early morning air.

The big buck wandered from our yard to several other neighbors’ yards, eventually getting out of the reach of my camera lens. By that time, chilled to the bone, I had captured many shots, and was ready to head inside, thinking a mug of hot cocoa would be the perfect way to top off this early morning photo shoot.

I hope you enjoyed meeting the buck who came for breakfast!
See you soon. ~Trail Walker

  1. How exciting and I see chain-link fencing in the background so the buck was not deterred by that obstacle and just marched right into your yard. I would have let my toast and cocoa get cold to take pictures of such a magnificent animal too – what a beauty it is. I am glad it is safe from the hunters our deer hunting season started today.
