Today morning during my morning walk with my four legged companion, Skooby, I was graced by the presence of this deer family. I have seen them before but never been able to take a photo. Generally Skooby will try to bark or try to give a chase. But familiarity must have given rise to boredom or the short leash may have helped. The doe kept eyeing me, assessing if we are any threat, moving slowly away from us and then stopping briefly to look at us again. Everytime she stopped, I stopped. Finally she must have been reassured enough to stay at one place to shoot her, albeit with my cell phone. Soon she had company but the big guy decided to stay at a distance, out of my cell phone camera’s reach for a good photograph.
Maybe this encounter today was predestined as my morning started with a post from Jane (A month with Yeats Day Fifteen) where she commented that a deer had come up to her window and peeped at her. There must be a deer connection somewhere.
