My hands were shaking....

Baby deer in camo

I listed a 30 acre property last week and there was no established trail down to the creek... the folks are older and it had grown up. So i took off with my GPS unit and got some great pics of the creek, then headed back through the woods to the house. I saw a deer run off just on the next ridge, but i thought it was just me startling her from a nap. I slid down a ridge and looked left and the first thought (not a rational one mind you) was why someone would bring a baby deer statue and put it up in the woods.... Well it wasn't a statue, but it was perfectly still - i got behind a tree and fumbled with my phone to get a pic.  Then i noticed the baby brother or sister lying just on the other side. The babies didn't move the whole time... I didn't get a perfect shot - i thought the mother might come back so i wanted to get out of there.  But what an experience - to be that close!

What a great reminder of how important nature is to us.  Sometimes something as simple as nature can remind us how mundane or inauthentic our real technology ridden lives have become.  Nature can be a great stress reliever shaky hands and all :)  Thanks for sharing!
