deer

I've tucked the baby red winged blackbird's tiny, hollow boned features into my memory as I walk back to my SUV. I drive a short distance to another pond on the preserve before spying three deer. They're grazing grass along the embankment behind the pond. It's there I notice a  bat's aeronautics and the chorus of frogs sounding the evening. I'm watching the white tailed deer gently move into the woods. Before disappearing from my sight a doe takes one last look over her shoulder. It's as if she's tucked my five foot frame into her memory. Somewhere in the folds of darkness she's pulled away from my sight.

@introverted art... thanks. i thought she looked so sweet looking over her shoulder like that.

@sandy... i'm not sure i understand where to see the like. do i have to have a wordpress blog to see it? if so, i don't have one. i have a google reader... can i see it from there?

I didn't know what the fuss was about until I clicked on your photo. Then I saw the beautiful doe looking back at you. Great capture!

She is looking right back at you, perfect capture. I wonder what she's thinking?
