A Summer Sunday Evening

Sunday evening, I noticed the golden hour glow outside and headed out to take a few pictures.

As soon as I opened the door, I saw that Mama and Baby Deer were out in our side yard.

Do you suppose he'll ever grow into those ears?

A few minutes later, Baby Deer ran to the other side of the yard from Mom, and I found myself in the middle.  Mom looked anxiously at her baby.

And, then, at me.  I don’t know much about the body language of deer, but I knew enough to immediately get myself back inside. Between a wild animal and her baby is not somewhere I want to be.

Once all that was settled, I continued on with my purpose for being out there in the first place: sunset pictures.

A sailboat was anchored just off from our yard.

It was one of those “soft” sunset skies.

Well worth fighting the mosquitoes and chancing possible Mama Deer attacks to capture.

  9. Beautiful sunset. Glad you were able to get pictures of it safely, without provoking a mama deer. You could always bring a sweet potato vine as a peace offering.
