Another old favorite

This is a sight I look forward to seeing in a few months, the new fawns. I don't like to crowd the babies (or any other wildlife for that matter) and was not as close as this looks as I had a zoom lens. I stumbled on the sweet little thing as I was walking across Big Meadows along Skyline Drive, and as soon as I took my photo I backed away to leave her in peace.

"Let us permit nature to make her own way.
She better understands her own affairs than we do."

  6. I am always amazed at how much deer look like our greyhounds! We had four deer back by our barn this morning (3 were bucks, which I thought was odd), and they looked so much like our 'hounds strolling across the field.

    What a sweet face!

  8. I have never seen a deer on my island. My brother used to hunt venison on Molokai, though.

  10. That is very good advice, Denise. Nature so often cannot find its old ways because it is under a parking lot or the new swimming pool is located there where the babies used to play, follow the leader.

  13. Even though we have a wooded area directly in back of our yard, we have never seen a deer there on our walks - how lucky for you - and the deer as well, Denise.

  14. Hi Denise!
    Its been a long time since I last heard from you! I'm roaming now and visiting friends ;-).

    I love your capture, Greg's stories, the rescued story and the chipmunk.

    So wonderful and inspiring stories!
    I'm glad I dropped by.

  16. Those words of Michel de Montaigne are so true. Too often man interferes with nature. Denise, this is the sweetest picture and thank goodness for zoom lens.
