The Deer Family

From the brochure:

The Deer Family was completed in 2001 and erected in 2002. It was made from old oil well tanks cut apart and welded to form the shadow design. To fit through the streets of Regent, the buck’s front leg had to be cut off and re-welded onsite. The buck is 75 feet tall and 60 feet long. The doe is 50 feet tall by 50 feet long.

A Horned Lark watched us look at the deer. It stayed on the fence post as Arlyn pulled the car within about three feet.

Here’s what the deer look like from a hill north of I-94. The grain elevator in the middle distance is in the town of Gladstone.
