What to my wondering eyes should appear – mule deer!

My theory: All the mule deer that disappeared off of Colorado’s available-for-hunters count actually smartened up and moved to the ‘burbs. Perhaps when the lions and bears figure out they are now on Colorado Parks & Wildlife’s hit list, they’ll follow suit.

The buck in the background is going “camo” behind the tree branches with his horns. The doe, center front, has had a frozen hind leg for a long, long time, we’re guessing from a car hit. The tank in the foreground is a rusty water trough turned planter.
