Life outside the Twin City beltway is different from where we used to live inside the beltway.
While I miss the sidewalks and proximity of things to see and do, what I have gained is a closeness to nature. Every day we have beautiful deer passing through our backyard. We get to see the small herds come and go. Outside my studio window I witness the little fawns leaping through the field with their mothers attentive to potential danger. As they grow their spots disappear.
I get to see their youthful curiosity morph into cautious attention to their surroundings.
One summer a young fawn approached my cat as we quietly watched from the deck. It gingerly approached while my cat squeezed itself flat into the grass. Momma deer stood about 50 feet away monitoring the situation. The closer the youngling got to the cat the mother began to stomp her hoof and bob her head. My cat didn't move a muscle. They were just inches away from each other nose to nose. Momma stomped, snorted then charged to disrupt a potentially dangerous encounter. The fawn lifted its head, registered momma's warning and darted off into the field. That's when my cat stood, arched his back with his fur standing on end, let out a hiss but held his ground.
I wonder if on the Day when the Lion and the Lamb lay down together if deer and cats with play in backyards together? Perhaps an erudite theologian can address that.
Until then the curious fawns will continue to fascinate me while traipsing through my yard.
