There are more signs of spring as we walk along, all of them still rather damp.

That quote from the Wizard of Oz is, to mix books a bit, really more like something from Dr. Seuss’ To Think that I Saw it on Mulberry Street, where the story keeps getting bigger and bigger until it deflates at the end. I didn’t actually see lions or tigers or bears, but I did see at least one very unusual thing, one imaginative thing, and many lovely things.  And to think that I saw them at McDowell Forest Preserve!

The morning was a chilly one and evidently there hadn’t been any people out recently because as I came to a turn in the path and looked up, I saw two deer, a doe and a buck. As I only had my phone, you’ll have to look closely.

When my eyes turned to the path, I saw another doe, and as I got a bit closer, her dilemma was clear:  “Should I stay or should I go?”

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. )
