Deer in the Morning, Manomet, Plymouth, Massachusetts, USA
On this morning, I was treated to a pretty snow-backed scene as these three deer wandered somewhat close to the house.
They made a good silhouette for this image. Then, they skittered away after observing my presence and movement inside the house. Do deer "skitter?" Perhaps, I should have said "skittered and sproinged away."
I always get a kick out of seeing wildlife wander or race by - deer, turkeys, foxes, squirrels, hawks, heron, otters, raccoons, and others. I am a guest in their world as they are in mine and they have learned that normally, the human race is not their friend. That's no surprise - we hunt them down and kill or imprison them or their offspring. No wonder they run from us.
