Deer cutting through the yard yesterday and keeping a relaxed eye on me and the neighbor's dog.

The Buffleheads are migrating and just enjoying a quick stop. Blurry picture, but it shows the small size of the Bufflehead ducks compared to the Canada Goose and Mallards.

and then they maintained this pose for a while...

      Uncle Tom- I do love watching all these critters! The frogs are getting louder and louder now too. (: So much fun. I don’t mind the spelling one bit either so no need at all to be sorry!! Thanks for being a loyal reader. Love you so much!

  2. I love your photos! Took the dog for a walk yesterday and saw 6 deer. We watched each other for a few minutes before the dog finally notice them, then it was over. Of course it was the ONE time that I didn’t take my camera with me :(

      HA Cathy that just happen to me this week too. The one morning I didn’t bring my camera to the bus stop (and embarass my kids- hee hee) we saw 7 deer slowly cross the road right next to us. Not grabbing the camera is almost guarantees seeing cool stuff. Is you dog’s name Chuck? If it is I love it. (:
