Deer Day

Sometimes coffee on the back porch really pays off. I happened to look toward the pond and saw a deer on the far side. Fortunately, Gus didn't see her, so I sent him inside. He would have barked and scared her away. 

I couldn't tell what she was doing until I zoomed in with my camera. She was nursing her baby. How lucky am I?

She saw me watching her...

...but didn't seem to mind.

She stayed there until her fawn was finished nursing, then they took off into the woods. Not something I've ever seen before, but sure happy she shared with me.

Weekend Roundup - W

This week's assignment: Starts with W, Favorite, and White.

Starts with W: WORK starts with W. This is our friend and neighbor getting ready to burn brush. One must wait until it is dry enough and not windy. Last Saturday was that kind of day. 

Favorite: Of Course, a horse. Isn't he a beauty. His name is WHISKEY and he likes carrots.


Just Because: How about a WET female cardinal? It was pouring down rain, but she still patiently WAITED for her turn at the feeder.

And Finally: These are the WATERFALLS Sioux Falls, SD is named for.
