I glanced outside while feeding the dogs the other day and saw a herd of deer in the yard.  Good thing the little Scottie girl dog didn't see them or she would have gone ballistic (she had to run a big buck out of the yard not long ago). The last count was 15, though I only caught a few in the photo.   I'm pretty sure the reason they dropped in was because there was a fire nearby the night before:
This was taken from my upstairs room, looking northwest.  The winds were 30-50mph by that time, down from 100mph gusts earlier.
It doesn't really convey, but the whole Front Range north of town for several miles was burned down. Luckily, it was mostly grasses with a few sparsely placed trees and homes.
