Surprise at the River

 On a trip to the river to visit with my son and check out
his new campsite we had quite a surprise

I was looking across the river and saw a small doe looking back

I called my son and he said oh yeah! it's tame

and I thought oh yeah.. sure it is
She came down to the water

and fed along the shore line

not at all concerned about me across the water taking picture after picture

Then....  she started out into the water
There were some people floating down stream and she was
heading straight for them
It was like she wanted to greet them
and that is exactly what she did... letting them pet her
She was not delayed from coming my way for long
She got to the little dam my grand daughter and daddy had made
walking around it and coming on strong
We were all in awe
My  grandson was first on the scene

and then I handed the camera off to get in on the fun

We all had lots of ideas about why she so friendly, but
really have no idea why...  but we were all thankful to be up close with this pretty little doe
The dog even got in on it
She left and walked down stream

A little later I saw a couple with her

feeding her cucumbers and carrots

She was liking that very much

To God be the Glory  ~~  On this 4th of July
