Pumpkin Munching

mule deer doe munching on open pumpkin, startled at human taking the picture as it turns to look with it's head covered in pumpkin pulp.

Daily Note

Every day, a photograph, a poem. Oh we had such a laugh on our daily walk! Look at this mule deer doe acting so innocent — and refusing to leave despite our presence— with it’s face covered in flakes of pumpkin pulp. Just our luck to catch this one! The whole neighborhood had pumpkin thieves this year!

Pumpkin Munching

On the porch a Jack O’Lantern
A push and crack! it’s a scattering
“What?” “Not me” the doe exclaims
With face all full of pumpkin remains.
