Well Hello There

A few days ago, we were headed out for a day of running errands. It was overcast and cool (what other type of Summer morning should we expect?) As we drove along our driveway, we saw someone bounding away across the neighbor's horse field. Nope, not a horse... two deer.

Now you all know that deer are quite commonplace in the woods. At least they are in our woods. But since we moved the dogs onto our property, we rarely see deer with our own eyes. So it was quite exciting for the kids. And, true to form, I happened to have my camera with me. (wink)

Startled by us, but also a bit confused, since we were lower than them, and holding still, they stopped at the end of the field, under a sheltering tree, and posed for a few moments while we rolled down the windows and looked on.
Then a ray of sunshine beamed down and they spotted us. And ran away.
Nice to meet you too.
