Deer!



















This piece was created to immortalize an epic confrontation which took place in my backyard this morning. A deer wandered into the backyard and one of the stray cats decided to stalk it. The deer showed a great deal of fortitude, however, and did not back down from the challenge.



















(Sorry about the blurriness, I had to take the picture through my filthy window.)

Oh my fucking goodness... THAT is the funniest thing I have seen in forever... the look on the deers face is a riot. I should make a boxing bout poster for their grand fight. your medallion is wonderful... as always. YAY!

Oooooh...I like this one a lot...not just because there's a story behind it that we have documentation of, but because it's lovely.

So...did they throw down? Who won?

Thanks everyone!

Shane, I guess I would call it a draw. After a few tentative pounces by the cat, and some hoof stomping by the deer, the cat decided to be the bigger man and walk away. The deer seemed disappointed.
