Animals Taking Over

My apologies to the original photographer. If you see this, please let me know, and I will add a photo credit. The photo was all over Facebook. I hope you don’t mind me using it here.

My husband found this on Facebook. As I exit the expressway into downtown every morning (when I used to drive in to work), I pass under a huge sign over Clinton Avenue welcoming drivers into downtown Rochester (NY). It’s usually a roadway FULL of cars. This picture was taken the other night of two female deer running up this empty stretch of road. My (empty) office building is on the left, its rooftop lit up in green. Other than sparrows, pigeons and an occasional squirrel, we don’t usually see wildlife downtown. The animals are taking over what we have abandoned.
