Deer Me

Just before 8 PM this evening, I finally got to leave work, leaving as I normally do by the stairs from our second-floor office and exiting through a side door. As I opened the door, I came nearly face-to-face with three deer that were grazing outside the door. Well, they might have been three or four meters away, but the moment I opened the door, they lit out around the building and down the hill. It startled me, but I recovered and crept slowly around the corner of the building and peeked around it the way they went. There were a total of four deer, now settling in and nibbling on the iceplant that covers the hill facing. I tried to keep still, but the deer looked at me nervously. Not wanting to disturb them further, I slowly backed away and headed to my van. I wish I'd brought my camera with me, though.
