I’m in the middle of nature mania: the Seven Day Nature Challenge, “Landscape” for the Weekly Photo Challenge, and “Nature” for the first Monday of every month at Sally’s challenge. But, as nature is my primary focus, so to speak, I think I can manage. I’m living on the edge today, combining Sally’s challenge with the Seven Day Nature Challenge. That means only one post. I can hear your thankful sighs from here. 🙂
Getting an animal photo with my iPhone isn’t easy. Coyotes are the worst, as they take off the minute they spot me, usually too far away to see well in the photo. Deer are almost as difficult. But on this grey morning, I was the only person in the park and walking quietly. I came around the corner to see two young does walking towards me on the opposite side of the path. I stopped immediately and, contrary to my expectations, they continued towards me. As they got within about ten yards, they appeared to recognize me as human, turned across the path, and headed into the woods. Fumbling to get my phone out without startling them, I managed to catch this shot of the second doe.
