Oh Deer!

I've noticed this winter a growing proliferation of deer in the area, perhaps it's due to the severity of the weather we've had and their need to forage more diligently for food. The accompanying photo was shot today by the traffic light at Mountain Road and Jozo Weider Blvd. Three deer were just off the road one of which made a mad dash across Mountain Road headed west towards the ski hills dodging cars as it went.
Almost daily as I travel along Highway 26 west of Cranberry Links, numerous deer can be seen in the woods on the north side of the highway, often they are lying down in a group which you don't often see. They seem quite accustomed to all the traffic as I have on occasion, pulled off to the side of the road, put my car window down and they are completely unphased even when you are no more than 75' or 100' away. While it's nice to experience nature up close, just make sure it's not due to one embedded in the grill of your car. Perhaps the 50KM speed limit on Highway 26 west isn't such a bad idea after all.
