Every morning I say hello and talk to the young deer just off my walking path. My daughter thinks I am a little whacky because I talk to the animals. Maybe, I am?
As I watch the woodland changes and see the animals, I like to interact with them. Building rapport with them, so I can try and take excellent wildlife and nature photographs.
When I see the geese nesting I remind them as I pass through each day, that I will not hurt them. I just like to see their progress.
Hello Deer Friend
When I see the deer in the woods, I say good morning and tell them they chose to live in a beautiful place or something similar.
Since I do this everyday, they get use to my presence. They get comfortable with me being there and my voice.
Today, instead of hiding and watching me through the woods, this buck came out and greeted me. I walked directly past him. He moved to the left, watched me pass and twitched his tail.
I told him after I passed I would love to get a picture of his horns growing in. When I turned back around, I expected him to be gone. But, he stuck around and I grabbed a few shots and then went on my way.
A Stop at the Meadow
I stopped at a meadow that has large pines, hardwoods, and cedars on the outskirts of the field. A good place to look for critters.
Sweet Little Bunnies Everywhere
There was a bunny happily chewing on blades of grass under the coverage of the cedars.
I stood and watched him and set up a few shots. He was pretty well hidden in the grass, I had to drop down lower to shoot through the grass and trees.
I love the artist feel to the picture from shooting through the vegetation.
Cutting Through the Field
I have to cut through the field to reach the woods and off in the distance were two turkeys.
On To the Woods
Rarely, do I walk in the woods and not come upon a deer or two. No exception today. This one posed for me. I’m a little crazy, in my own special way. Keeps life interesting.
Deer: “Does this pose make my butt look big?”
Me: No, deer you look marvelous. Simply marvelous.” “Work the camera. Work the camera, girlfriend.”
After I visited with my furry friend raindrops started coming down and I decided it was time to head for the car.
Another wonderful morning in the meadow and walking through the woods completed. Thanks for tagging along.
Have I told you lately that I just absolutely love my nature walks?
