Three of seven deer that we saw at the Nature Preserve
This time of year we don't see many signs of wildlife--not even the ever-present prairie dogs--but we did see at least seven deer roaming the prairie and finally settling in the thicket where, with the help of a patient husband and a not-strong-enough zoom lens, I captured three of them. These three seemed to be afraid of people but not vehicles, so Bob slowly edged our Jeepito closer to the thicket which was just off the road. I had readied my camera so that its zooming and whirring noises wouldn't startle them and ten shots later I got one that I liked. I do so enjoy my little camera safaris into our City and Mountain Parks and Preserves. I'm hoping to do another one today as the sun is already bright and warm.
