White-tailed Deer

This white-tailed doe (Odocoileus virginianus), too unconcerned about people, too accustomed to eating our plants, is usually in the back yard. I’ve explained to her that she can have all the English ivy, and garlic mustard, and stilt grass that she can eat, but still she insists on eating the hostas.
