Driving down the road at dawn, we came upon these deer grazing along and not bothered by our passing. Bucks having shed their antlers makes it hard to tell which are does! Looking at us, I wondered what they were thinking. It was peaceful, unlike any time I’ve ever come across a bunch of speed goats who always take off running no matter how far away I am, and most of the time they run right at me. I hope to come across some fawns this spring all gangly legs and swishing tails.
I think these deer would have been a most welcome sight to those coming up out of their dug out after a long dark night. It would have possibly meant fresh meat and a prayer of thanks for abundance, and also for the beauty of the scene.
