Big shape out window
Melts away when door opens
Five deer in the woods
A week ago I told you about my morning visitors. I hear them as I leave the house in the dark and occasionally see their silvery forms scamper across the yard into the woods.
A rustling sound
Tiny hoof beats across hill
Dark shadow in the rain
On Sunday morning I looked out of a second floor window. Very close to the house, but at eye level I saw a big shape. Oh, by the way, there is a big hill behind the house so the deer wasn’t magically floating in air. I grabbed my camera. I had to be quick because i knew my wife was taking the dogs out. I heard the door open and grabbed a shot. It wasn’t the best angle, but I didn’t have time to get to a better vantage. The deer heard the door and scampered up the hill.
Later I saw it join four others. They waited until the dogs went in and then ran to a safer place.

Glimpse of white ghost in the trees
I decided to make B&W versions of these pictures. It gives them the silvery look I see when it’s still dark. This is also a small answer to the B&W challenge given to me by Priorhouse blog. I may not except her full challenge, but I will put up some B&W photos for her.
Here’s the drawing I did last year. See where I got the inspiration?
