Buck!

On a recent walk we were lucky enough to be able spend a fair amount of time observing and watching a very handsome Mule Deer Buck escorting his harem through the forest.

While we hung out and watched the whole group of deer pass through the male stood watch curious yet calm and quiet.

Before the group moved away and into the deeper reaches of the forest the male put his nose to the sky to make sure all were present and accounted for.

A nice surprise and the highlight of the stroll.

In the Wild

Oh the Squirrel. Our nemesis in the yard pillaging the bird feeders and outsmarting my attempts to keep them off. In the wild away from the city they are (serious hesitation)  cute and this guy munching a pine cone as the November sky says time to fatten up brought a smile to our face.

White-Crowned Sparrow

Perched in the willows along a mountain lake a White-crowned Sparrow enjoys the autumn sunrise. Photographed over two months ago yet it feels like just yesterday.

D0 you ever get the feeling that time sure seems to speed along at different rates sometime slow and sometimes fast yet always marching on?

Have another wonderful weekend.
