Mornings are cold at the park now, especially until the (ray, a drop of golden) sun hits.  But by the time I turned down this part of the path, I was warm enough to think about unzipping my jacket just a bit.  I hadn’t see anyone or anything other than birds, when I raised my eyes and saw something looking back at me (a name I call myself).

I immediately stopped, eased my phone out (no, I didn’t have my Nikon, more’s the pity), zoomed in, and took this first photo.

I stood still for a few minutes, then slowly and with camera still at the ready, walked slowly towards her.  Then I saw it.  Look just to the left of her, behind the bushes, and you’ll see it, too.

The branches mask my view of the deer.  I hope to see more deer at the park this spring.

Other visual interpretations of “mask” can be seen on Debbie’s One Word Sunday challenge.  Feel free to drop by and take a look.

Today I’m being wild and crazy, participating in two challenges at once:  Cee’s Oddball Photo Challenge and Debbie’s One Word Sunday.  I wanted to call this post “Square Oddball”, but that would be two words, hence just “Square/s.”

This is the view you get when taking an iPhone photo of two of the five bucks having a meal just outside the screened cabin window in Wyoming’s Big Horn Mountains.  The phone won’t focus past the screen as would my Nikon here, but it does create an oddball photo with plenty of squares.

(Sorry about the two different fonts.  It doesn’t show up that way in the original and won’t change when I try to edit it to all be the same. )

Oh, deer!

Moose aren’t the only four-legged animals I saw near the cabin this summer.  There was a group of bucks hanging around together. One day I looked out the kitchen window and there they were, all five of them!  Thankfully I had my Nikon, as the phone would only focus on the screens in the window.  Besides these guys already were leery and could see me even inside.  If I’d tried to open the door, all I would have caught would have been deer hindquarters bounding away and boy, do they bound!

The van’s loaded, the cabin shut for the winter, and we’re on our way.  Let’s pause at the as we get on the Red Grade Road and take a look at the mountains in the dawn.  Do you see Black Tooth back there, about right in the middle, still with snow?

The view just as we start to descend is even more beautiful than usual.
