Oh Deer!! (30 Day Nature Challenge)


Can you see the shapes of deer in the thicket?
No? Let me get closer......
There they are!!
They're keeping their eye on me as they enjoy a delicious lunch of grasses, plants and flowering weeds.
Usually when I spot deer it's only one or two together. This time I hit the jackpot - there were 6!! Moms and babies.
 This one is giving you a good view of its rear end - now you can clearly see why they are called white-tailed deer.

Leaving the thicket.... they don't seem to mind me following...
 I found a leafy spot where I could see them better than they could see me :)
 I am learning how to walk very quietly!  After awhile they moved on to the remains of a corn field. I left my leafy coverage to get more photos - they were remarkably NOT jumpy and tolerated me to my surprise and gratitude! Here they are posing for me :) This is when I need a camera with a better zoom lens!
  Aren't they so beautiful?
 Looks like it's time to go!
 Heading for the trees...
 Don't forget me!!
 Wait!! I have an itch!
Sigh...ok we're waiting...
Last one home is a rotten egg!
These daily experiences have an incredible power - any physical or psychological pains I may be feeling completely disappear. I'm in the moment and think about nothing except what I'm seeing and hearing. Very healing to the soul, heart and mind. I highly recommend it!
