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!
