Bayli's Corner of Deer June 3, 2010

Bayli1: Somewhere around 9:30 last night there was a deer eating on middle cam. The raccoon was eating on the ground on Cam 3. Suddenly....the deer slowly heads for the raccoon, looking like she was going to run it off. Before the deer got to the oak, the raccoon ran behind the oak. The deer stopped...looking did he go?

Then began the cutest thing I think I have ever seen anywhere! The deer stood there in one spot...she leaned her body and head to the right to look around the oak, the raccoon moved to the left....the deer then leaned to the left, peered around the oak and the raccoon moved to the right....still behind the oak...but I could see him! The deer did this back and forth trying to look around the tree to see that coon at least 4 or 5 times....each time the raccoon would move to the opposite side of the tree!

Finally, the deer gave up, she just couldn't find that coon. She moved back to the feeder...and that coon ran up that tree in record time! LOLOL. And he stayed up in that tree until the deer left. It was the most hilarious thing I've seen!
