Deer Doing Bonsai

With few predators, if any, deer in the San Juan Islands have increased in number such that they have a noticeable impact on the landscape. Homo sapiens are not the only environmental influence in the anthropocene. The deer on Blakely Island, like deer elsewhere in the San Juans and perhaps the suburbs, have taken up bonsai pruning.
