Pike Island: Among the deer


Hanging out with the deer of Pike Island was fun. Every once in awhile I stopped taking pictures of them and reveled in the largesse of nature. I thanked the great spirit for the magnificent gift of deer company. I praised the small gods for the mercurial bounty of nature.

 And then I hoped none of the deer were giving me Covid, because it turns out a huge number of white tailed deer in America are infected with our dreaded virus.

One of the deer even had a runny nose!

But mostly I went with the thankful thing. 

And then I took some more pictures. They're such good pictures I decided I'd better make them less impressive by adding cheeky captions.

Check out his tongue!

Photo bomb!

Hiding in the bushes to avoid the photographer doesn't work so great when there aren't any leaves:

We were of mutual interest to each other

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
