Beauty of the Day

I mentioned before that we have several deer on the property. There are at least six bucks chasing the doe around the yard. There’s a 10 or 12-point, 8-point, 6-point, 4-point, and a buck with only one 3-point antler. Here’s a picture of the 8-point that stood grazing by the barn today. You can see his rack, but unfortunately you’ll have to take my word on the number of points. Best I can do with the digital. Maybe the 35mm shots will be more clear. I'll let you know. Enjoy the beauty of the day.

I've caught up reading your blog entries now, too, in addition to all my other blog friends' posts.

That's a great shot. When I came to live with mom and dad there were still deer that would come from time to time. It was always so breathtaking to see one walk up to a fence and just jump over it.

We do the summer winter clothes thing here too.

Great on the heater. You may well need it.

Great posts on writing, too.

I didn't think I'd ever get caught up on everyone's blog entries. Hope you're feeling better, Terry. I love watching the deer in the yard. We counted at least six buck and 10 doe this year. I lost count on the turkey after I got to 50 and they all started running and playing with each other. They're comical to watch.

Yes, they are comical to watch, Nancy. I'm hoping the pictures I took with my 35mm with the zoom lense on turn out a bit more clear. We'll see...as soon as I have time to take them to get developed. LOL
