I think he is quite a handsome deer.  
And speaking of deer...

It's time to take a look at our November Trail Camera photos.

We had lots of deer activity, and it begin November, low dim light for many of the photos.

Look closely and you can see a fawn napping while Mama gets a drink.

We had far more buck activity than we've had all year.

There are at least two bucks...

...maybe three of them.  Do you think this guy just had a slurp of water?


This threesome comes to the backyard almost daily. 

We did 'capture' a couple of other critters including an opossum. 

And also a gray squirrel.

We had one nice even shot of a bob-cat.

And we 'captured' some people too!  

Our new neighbors have been looking at my blog.  They want to see where the trail camera was located.  We walked over a visited there for a while.

And about one hour after we left, look who strolled by!

A bobcat!

And even more exciting - look who is following her!

A totally adorable baby bobcat.

Here's another photo of Mama and Baby.

Baby Bobcat

Wow, that's so cool with the mom and baby bobcat! Although the fact that they are so close to you is a bit intimidating. :D Love your stitched deer.

Hi,
I love your blog! I've been searching for Birds of a Feather Curious as a Cat and Smart as a Fox for a long time and cannot find them. Do you have any sources for these darling charts? I live in McMinnville OR and have a ginger cat named Hadley.
Thanks so much!

I wonder if the neighbors are going to meander out there again, after seeing a momma bobcat and her baby now?? Hmmm...
