Wild Animals

The wildlife here is prolific. First, the deer are extremely presumptious, wandering onto people's lawns and gazing boredly at your car after they leisurely trot off the road. There are rumours of cougars in the neighborhood, and twice now a black bear has lumbered right into our back yard. The children were beside themselves with excitement. These are children who, for the most part, have never even seen the stars before! After the second bear-sighting, Jaeho ran out with a camera and I ran out with a big stick (just in case :) and we tried to hunt the bear down, but it had disappeared.

Our neighbors found this tiny, amazing creature on their lawn. It was only a few days old and the mother deer was grazing nearby. I can't tell you how cool it was to see! Bambi's way cuter in real life than in the cartoon :)
