It was a pretty chilly morning when I decided I needed a nature break, but nature was calling, so I bundled up and headed for Fort White Alive yesterday.
You can see larger versions of these photos by clicking on them and scrolling through.
I had almost finished the loop around, when I saw a beautiful White-tail Deer watching me approach. Looking around, I saw there were several others, but this one was standing on the path watching me – so I took her picture, and then zoomed in and took a few more as she continued to watch me.
The first 4 photos are all from the first beautiful deer. Then I turned off the path to let her stay undisturbed and I went towards the bird hide, where I found two others. These 2 moved off as I approached, and I continued along the trail after bypassing the first Deer who was still standing and watching me. The last photo was not too far down the path, where another Deer was standing, but she quickly went back into the bush where I saw her and several others bounding away.
This was a much shorter walk than usual, but the wind was very cold and nasty, so I went back to the entrance to warm up a bit before getting into my cold car to head for home.
I haven’t been writing in awhile due to my 96 year old mother going from her apartment to a hospital and now (after a few months) to an interim nursing home, where she will stay until her preferred nursing home has room for her.
