On my cycles to and from work, I often see deer on or near the trail. That has become so commonplace in the past couple of years that I no longer think much of it. But it is still a delight when I see an animal closer to home and unexpectedly. I was driving near my home today when I saw something coming towards me by the side of the road. Too big for a dog...wrong shape...it's a deer. I slowed for a close look before it bounded away through someone's front garden, but it reminded me how wonderful it is that we still have large wildlife amongst us.
