Another Neighborhood Deer...

First thing this morning I received a call from the same neighbor that had the buck in his yard yesterday.  He wanted to tell me that a piebald fawn was at his feeder and that I should come over and take a photo if I wanted.  It only took me about three minutes to be there and start snapping away...


I have read that piebalds suffer from inferior genetics.  I don't knowif that is true, but I do believe they are beautiful creatures that I enjoy seeing and photographing...


From there I made my usual loop, looking for photographic opportunities.  I came upon this Great Blue Heron that appeared to be hunkered down in the cold...


Just a short distance away a group of migrating Mallards were enjoying the early morning...


There was heavy fog this morning and this doe seemed more like a ghost in the woods than a flesh and blood deer...


I stopped by this historical building on the way home.  It was standing during the civil war and was the site of a battle in which thousands were killed...



As always, thanks for visiting.

  2. Tricia, sadly it is not open for entry. We must be satisfied with the exterior.
