It’s not easy being a deer.

 

This is the time of year my heart goes out to these graceful wild creatures.

Because in Maine?

It’s fly season.

And there’s nothing flies like more than a juicy deer.

The poor things are covered in them.

Day and night, night and day.

All over their bodies.

They twitch, they scratch, they shake like a Parkinson’s patient to no avail.

I can’t even imagine how horrible this must be.

I go berserk if one nasty fly finds me when I’m mowing the lawn…. I’d be stark raving mad if I had to contend with this many!
