The other day I drove to a particular wooded area to try to
catch a picture of some cranes that I'd seen landing in that area when I had
driven by a couple of times.As I
rounded the corner, a blur crossed my path, creating this noisy crashing sound,
and I braked the car to a quick stop.I
realized it was a deer.A young
deer.He stopped a few yards from me and
stared at me, probably wondering what on earth I was doing in his neck of the
woods.I'm not sure who was surprised
more, him or me.My camera happened to
be in an open case in the seat behind me, and I slowly reached around and
grabbed it.I managed one quick shot
before he dashed off into the bushes.He
was beautiful, and in the 3.5 seconds I had my eyes locked on him, I felt like
I was staring into the face of God.What
a lovely creature.
I missed the cranes.They weren't there.But I got
something better.I love it when things
happen that way.

Just got home from Illinois, lock the front door, oh boy! Got to sit down, take a rest on the porch. Imagination sets in, pretty soon I'm singin', Doo, doo, ...
