This visit this morning reminds me of 17 years ago when another mother deer brought her twins around while I was working outside picking up branches. The two grown twins were males and a couple years later one showed up looking for some bird seed. I put some in a bucket and he walked up to me and started eating without hesitation from my hand.
That turned out to be a long close relationship that lasted until he died of old age. I could not get other people to witness our relationship as if others were present he simply vanished. I miss him terribly and those times we spent together just sharing that closeness that can't be explained. I would rub his nose and pick ticks off him and he would make little mewing sounds. Today was a reminder of his mother when she brought him around to visit for a few hours while I worked outside and talked to them.
