You’ll understand why the poor photo quality when you understand I was sneaking up on the doe and her twin fawns and trying, quite unsuccessfully, to dodge rain, and, more successfully, dodged the thunder and lightening.
There’s been an abundance of wild life in the valley, bear, Golden and Bald eagles, deer, turkey, grouse, skunks, possums, foxes…perhaps the lack of water and rain has driven them from the mountains to the pastures.
It’s all I can do to capture a glimpse, getting a photo, even a blurry photo, is almost a miracle!
Much more difficult to see the twin fawns but, trust me, both are there; standing close to Mother. I’m not sure but, perhaps, if you double click the image will enlarge…? Might be worth a try. When I say I was sneaking up…I was still a couple of football fields away!
To all who have said a prayer I would get some help on the farm…thank God for answered prayers! A neighbor’s son, 16, has been helping me this week and we’re both glad…he for the money and groceries, me for the help. I’m old school…no, really, I am!…smile…and
think know breakfast is the most important meal of the day. This young buck shows up…bless him!…with no food in his belly. How on earth can he expect to use his equipment with no fuel in the engine?! So, I make sure he gets a meal before we get started…usually it’s a pepperoni cheese roll stuffed with fried egg and sausage, lots of protein and carbs. Then, I feel better about working him like I own him!
Oh, give it up and laugh. It’s a joke! Besides, you know I don’t; I work him like Mom and Daddy worked me…to teach, instruct, build character and, hopefully, be a good influence in his life.
