Natural Camouflage In The Wild...

How many deer do you see in this photo?  Look closely and you will find six.  A good example of how wildlife has evolved and adapted to blend in with their surroundings...


One of my recent obsessions has been to photograph a small population of fox squirrels that I recently located.  If you live in an area where they are common, you might be thinking "what's the big deal?"  I probably see 150 gray squirrels for each fox squirrel spotted.  This adds to the challenge of getting photographs...








Later in the morning I found this cooperative Slate Colored Junco...



These deer race across an open field to escape the sound of a low flying helicopter...


Here, two NPS Rangers perform a field necropsy on a deer that is suspected of being shot by a poacher...


I will leave you with a photo of this beautiful old brick farmhouse that witnessed much violence and chaos during the civil war...


Thanks for visiting.  Stop back soon.
