Night Visitors

Last night, just as I was settling in for the evening, there was a commotion in the backyard. It sounded like several large, heavy somethings were stomping around, doing a drunken reel, stumbling over the lawn furniture. Here's what the digicam saw.

What the digicam saw

No, that's not the mother ship, come to take away all my UFOs. It's far worse, a herd of hungry bachelors, sprawled out to chew cud, play poker, and snack on my shrubs! A gardener's nightmare!! The same photo, enhanced to resemble what my eyes could see. There were several more beyond camera range.

Oh deer

Bold as brass, with nary a fare-thee-well. My garden is doomed.
