Well, ah done bin up th' street again and I'm back recharging the camera's batteries! WHAT a time for them to go! I was on my way back down and I saw a four pointer having breakfast on a berry filled ornamental bush in someone's front yard.
I got one somewhat fuzzy photo of him. I started to take more as he allowed me to slowly approach till I was within (easily) twenty feet of him. The camera said "Warning! Battery Exhausted" Nooooo. No. Not NOW for pity sake!!! But it was and I was as I said, left to feel gratitude even for one photo. If you look hard among the fuzzy focus you might see the antlers.
I also snapped a new seed pod off one of the many Magnolia trees and a small branch of Hemlock with its tiny intricate lovely cones. And I picked up a leaf that is still colorful and dragged all of it home for a blogging friend who asked for the pod. I'll get it ready to mail in a short short.
If I put it in...I have a pic of me straining up a hill this morning and my shadow looked intriguing. Made me look like a long legged model. You can sure tell I am wearing boot cut jeans though and a heavy jacket. Of course, being 5'2" tall...I ain't no long legged model.
