    The deer have been coming on to the property every night now for about 2 weeks...we have 7 wild apple trees of different varieties throughout the property, which attract a lot of deer this time of year....mostly in the evening and night time but the day before yesterdat, 4 of them....2 females and 2 tiny fawn were just standing on the dirt road eating the apples from one of my front apple trees....at 11 am! no pictures of that, i was caught off guard!

    These pics are not clear that i do have of them, because it was dark, really dark and my camera does not work at night....but you can get the gist of it....

    plus i got the racoon that feeds off the birdfeeder at night....the one of the racoon with a baby skunk both eating, next to eachother did not come out....but they travel together....i have seen them at least 5 times together!

    they like the yellow apples best, then the green apples, then the red apples and lastly, the eat the really small crab apples! i have two yellow apple trees and they spend most of the time eating those....year after year, they come back here.

    here is the yellow apples, and then crab apples

    the cherries on the small wild cherry trees are ripe as well this time of the year...lots of fruit for the birds and critters...
