The end of a busy day.....

I go to nature to be soothed and healed,
and to have my senses put in order.
John Burroughs

There are times my days are filled with 'stuff' and I long
to just get away and drive down a country road
and hope to see something ..... At the end of today
I took that drive and came up with both hands
full of blessings.
The first blessing was this fawn in a very lovely setting.

He started to walk away and then....

after taking a second look and seeing no harm...

Did a little grooming

and off he went.

A short distance away his mom was happily eating
along side a pond.

She was not paying attention to me either.

Then another car came down the road startling her.

and she was gone .

Further down the road I saw this darling fawn being
groomed by it's mom.

If you click you can get a closer look.
My Sony H9 is in the shop once again and
I'm using the H5 with does not have the
tele-conversion lens. Doesn't reach as far!! Sorry.

They too saw me stopped and it wasn't long....

Mom was gone and baby after.

My blessing for the day is coming here to see what beauty you share. How lucky that you can just drive down a road and see all those beautiful & graceful deer. Thank you for sharing!
