Into the woods...



This past weekend was just beautiful! I enjoyed several long walks, as well as doing a little bit of puttering around the yard. I also had the opportunity to test out the zoom feature of my new little camera, with the cooperation of these curious deer. It looked like a doe and her two adolescent fawns (babies from last May). What fun! I'm looking forward to trying to catch some of the birds in my area, as well as other fauna and flora. I find that my imagination simply boggles when thinking of the possibilities for carving from nature!

Beautiful picture, but I wonder if that tree would hold a letterbox? Maybe a small one...

Webfoot said...

Thanks for all the nice comments! I hadn't thought about sending anything in for the calendar, so thanks for the suggestion! :)

Rob, you crack me up! It's must be a Missouri mutant deer-- I wonder what's in the water!

You're right, little piggies -- it looks like that tree could, indeed hold a small letterbox. And it looks as if it would have some good guardians in the bargain!

I've been here twice now, and every time I see that picture, all I can hear is deer-voices saying, "WHATCHA DOIN' WHATCHA DOIN' WHATCHA DOIN'?"

Those last two voices are in unison, from the mutant deer, of course. :)
