Share and Share Alike

My next door neighbor had a visitor to her bird bath on Monday. I had to hustle to get this photo and I wound up spooking this deer and two others that were elsewhere in Sally's yard.
There's a tree at the shared corner of our properties. As a youngster, my son Evan loved squirrels. So we built a platform, attached it to the tree. In winter, we put bird seed that the squirrels and the birds ate. Actually, the blue jays and squirrels or the cardinals and the squirrels or the big black birds and squirrels always fight. This is the first time I've seen anything at Sally's bird bath.
Not a great photo, but the best I could get before it ran off.

I spooked the bald eagle trying to get a closer shot, too. I admire wildlife photographers! I still think this is a great shot!

What a gorgeous critter. Wonderful shot. :)

Nice one ... it's hard to catch them standing still!
