White-Tailed Deer in November

Whether it be woods, parks, or suburbs, most anywhere in Massachusetts, you will see white-tailed deer in November. Opinions vary significantly on whether this is a good thing or not. Pros: they look cute, they are good targets for hunting, and properly-cooked venison is delicious. Cons: they destroy flowering plants in the winter, they harbor ticks and help spread Lyme disease, and they recently have been found to be widely-infected with COVID-19. A recent study found that 40% of those tested in four states had COVID antibodies. https://www.gavi.org/vaccineswork/white-tailed-deer-found-be-huge-reservoir-coronavirus-infection

With that introduction I will show you the view from my driveway one afternoon a few weeks ago.
