KUSA - Lori Jones works at Horsetooth Inn and RV Park located in Stout, Colorado (population: 47 1/2... look it up).
Lori said three weeks ago a mama deer waltzed into the store.
That’s when she snapped photos of mama checking out sunglasses.
And weighing the pros and cons of buying junk food (you and me both, sister).
“I lured her outside with a peanut bar,” Lori wrote in an email to Denver's 9NEWS.
But, Lori would see that deer again ... and there would even be a surprise. Here’s what happened next in her own words.
“Later, I was in the office checking the store stock,” Lori wrote. “I walked out and there she was with her twins and a lone buck that she nursed. I just used my phone to snap the pics. I laughed so hard!”
Her photos are nothing if not incredible. In it, you see a curious mama deer – and then some babies peering into the store to see what’s going on.
Someone needs to call the judges for the National Geographic Photo of the Year ... stat.
