No free lunch here

I rarely see deer in my backyard this winter, and I think the backyard herd may have shrunk to just a couple of individuals.  But this morning, a young buck visited all the bird feeders, just checking to see if there were any free meals there.

This one is just a little out of reach.

This one is reachable, but apparently peanut butter suet is not a favorite in this guy’s diet.

But the sunflower seeds on the ground over in the wildflower garden look tasty.

I miss my cervid visitors. I wonder if this young buck grew up in the backyard and came back for a visit.

Judging from these antlers, this might be only his second or third winter.
