Who’s Hiding Here?

Its Bambi the friendly deer!
At first she was a surreptitious spy,
Camouflaging herself in this bush.
Gaping at me.
While I was sitting on a rock.
Minding bathing-birdy-business.

But then she decided to come near,
Pussy-footing,
or should I say,
“deer-footing” closer.
I wonder why?

When she got closest,
she starting chuffing at me.
Which was either warning or alarm,
or both?
You can see her chuffing.

She came up close.
What a beauty!

I wish she had come closer still,
So I could help her rid those ticks.

I think she maybe wished I could.

Poor beauty with such beasts.
