Once again, Saint John is covered by a thin blanket of light, fluffy snow. Cold and blustery day, but brilliant sunshine.
As usual, before going home, we went through the park, which hardly ever disappoints. Met a few deer; they were eating carrots that some kind soul had put out for them. They stopped when I got out of the car, with my camera, looked at me for a brief moment, then went on about their business … except the little one. He seemed to be intrigued by me, he just couldn’t stop looking at me as I was taking his picture.
It struck me, as I was hunched down there in the snow, how fortunate I am to be able to look a wild animal in the eyes. These guys are fairly used to humans, in the park, but still … they are wild animals. Another moment, that I will never forget, was when a Bald Eagle looked at me … straight in the eyes. That really made my hair stand up. I have a lot to be thankful for.
I’ll just post a few as a gallery here…
