Foragers

It’s 5:15 in the afternoon.  The sun is just settling below the horizon.  On my front lawn six deer are foraging.  Normally I would chase them away, not wanting them to be too comfortable this close to the house.  But I notice they are foraging for the acorns dropped by the oaks last fall.  So I’ll let the deer be helpful for a change by clearing out the acorns that will, in the warmer months, bruise my bare feet.
