Hunting...... Vegetarian Style!

It's supposed to get really cold again, so I decided to get out of the house while the weather was nice today. It got up to almost fourty degrees, but it is supposed to be in the teens later this week and throughout the weekend.

So - I went hunting! I hunt vegetarian style - with a camera, rather than a gun.
(my son Andrew would be so proud of me)
It works well because there are no licenses to buy and whatever I happen to see is always in season. Today, it was Canadian Geese and Whitetail Deer.

This is my favorite shot of the day! A Canadian Goose in flight!
And this pair of deer were hidden back in the woods beside a creek.
Here is the younger one by itself. It was more curious than afraid. But, when I tried to get closer both mother and baby ran away.

And this is what you might see if you slow down enough to LOOK! I barely saw these two and walked right up on them. I had seen deer in the area before and was walking as slowly and as quietly as possible. They blended into the environment so nicely - that I almost missed them.
