Run, We Have Been Seen

There was three of them. It was the middle of the afternoon, and the first one slowly walked into the middle of the road. She did not see us setting at the drive entranced just fifty feet to the north. She looks over, spotted us, and darted across the road. Next thing you know, there are three of them, running through this field. There is no cover there, so they just ran. Up the road about another 100 feet, they crossed the road to get cover in the foliage. It was beautiful.

Run, quick

Just before they took off.  

Just before they took off.  

I have to share this story. I was out taking pictures yesterday at Garbry Big Woods Reserve. I was in a hurry to get home to take an important call, so I was setting in my car deciding if I had time for a walk. While I was setting there, this doe and her fawn walk out of the wooded area to my left. I watch them just casually walk across the open field, heading in the direction of the pond. It was early, so I was the only person around.

She was nervous. I assume it was my car. (My Mini Cooper sets a reaction frequently:) I think it’s the red top. I was afraid to open the door because I new she would bolt. I took a few shots out the window, but they were not very good. The front glass does some weird stuff to photos.

At some point, I saw a park ranger driving into the area. I knew he was not going to stop so I could watch the deer. I opened the door as quietly as I could but they were taking off. I got out, and stood there to see what happened. They went about 25 yards, then stopped to see if they were safe. That is when I took this picture. They were looking square at me, and my camera was focused on them. I took a lot of photos. It was a beauftiful scene.

It was a great day for photos. I was able to get a few photos of a hawk, cardinal, robin, and saw a mink. Not bad for a rushed morning. And I was home for that phone call.

Why run?

What a georgous creature and stunning photo. I was driving between locations on my morning photo outing. I have several favorite spots, and sometimes I will stop at 2 to 3 locations. On Monday morning, I was heading to another location when I saw this dear. She was laying in this wheat field. I slowed down to see what she was up to. She stood up, and looked back at me, but did’t run. I stopped in the middle of the road. I was not sure how long I would have. I figured either a car would come up behind me, or she would bound off. We set there looking at each of their for what seemed like hours. I snapped several photos, she just watched. Beautiful.

You can’t see me ..

We had a family get together in Springfield on Saturday. I took my camera so I could capture some special family photos.

Just to the west of Garbry Big Woods Sanctuary we saw this young dear standing in the road. She just watched as we drove closer, then darted into the tree cover. I figured she was gone, but she was just off the road, in the trees, watching us. Cute.
