Saw a deer in the park yesterday! No big deal, one would think … usually we see bunches of them in the winter. Not so this year — they haven’t had to get out of the woods as we’ve had no snow. My blog title — absence of snow — is an outright lie right now; we do have some snow finally. Decided to try that border technique again on a darker photo.
Last Sunday, there were four of them in a garden down below our building here. They’re often there but this time I decided to go down there and try and get a better shot of them … they were all lying down, resting in the sun.
I grabbed my camera and bundled up, the winds were really icy after the snowstorm. The thing was, however, when I got down to street level, I could no longer see them. Not without stepping in on somebody’s property, that is, and I didn’t want to do that. Didn’t see anyone to ask permission either. Somehow, the area where they were, is a bit elevated, which I didn’t realize when looking from up here, so this was all I got!
There are usually a few mourning doves, hanging around the feeders in the park. I can honestly say that I haven’t paid all that much attention to them … there are so many pigeons there so they kind of ‘melt in’. Yesterday, I took a shot of one …because only squirrels were around … and I had not noticed before what amazing eyes they have! This isn’t exactly the world’s best shot, but at least you see the eye clearly…[all the pictures are clickable for better viewing].
Since it was Valentine’s Day yesterday, we went out and had a really good supper! No cooking, no dishes to take care of afterwards … great! Today though, might be laundry day!
