Only in Phoenix

I was just leaving for Echo Coffee yesterday morning, when I noticed three young male deer in my neighbor’s yard.  It’s amazing to me to see deer in the desert.  This isn’t the first time I’ve seen deer in my neighborhood.  Heck, I’ve seen them eating the plants in my front yard.  But when I first drove past them, they were grouped perfectly under a tree in the neighbor’s yard, and it was just picture perfect…except I wasn’t immediately ready for a picture.  I turned around, and one by one, they ran across the driveway, then into the open area by the house.  From there they huddled under a new tree.  In one picture, notice a saguaro cactus, prickly pear cactus, an ocotillo cactus, sage brush, and one of the deer nibbling from the tree.  For me, it was just an amazing sight.
