I took this picture tonight on my way home from work. This young deer was out for a stroll a couple blocks away from our house. (It’s a little blurry on my iPhone!)
We moved to a community on the edge of the Angeles National Forest. It’s pretty common here to see deer, coyotes and black bears (!) walking down the street. A few years back, the town had to form a special squad to deal with all the bears coming down from the mountain late at night to swim in backyard pools and eat oranges and avocados.
Our neighbors warned us to keep our pets in after dark. I feel like I’m living in the wilderness!
