Backyard Deer

Looked out my back window this morning to see these four deer feeding on the acorns beneath a large oak tree in my neighbor's yard -- an adult and three adolescents. Hard for me to imagine where they live. The woods in the background of these photos are a buffer about 50 yards wide and maybe 500 yards long with houses on all four sides of the woods. I can't imagine they live in that area alone. They fed on the acorns and grass for about a half-hour, then when the juveniles started getting restless and playing, mom gathered the brood and retreated back into the woods.
