This was one of four deer (two big ones, two little ones) who were watching us work while they dined on the homeowner’s expensive landscaping.
I’ve always heard tales about Los Angeles’ urban deer, but today was the first time I’ve actually seen one.
They weren’t all that afraid of us, either. They just kept eating and only looked alarmed if we got too close to them or made a lot of noise.
Right after I took this photo, they sauntered up the driveway, stopped briefly to sample the rental plants the set dressers had brought in, and then disappeared over the crest of the hill.
