A Doe in the Morning

edit1132010-mg_0640_edited-1

On a morning in March 2009 I looked out our front window and in the next door neighbor’s yard stood the Doe you see above.  She was partially hidden by the tree, which by the way is no longer there, and seemed completely oblivious to the fact she was standing in the middle of a neighborhood.  She stayed a couple minutes longer before walking off through to the back yard and out onto the railorad tracks behind our home. (The railroad tracks have been replaced by a bicycle/ walking track as many of you know.)  I believe I posted the image years ago and then lost it when my hard drive fried.  Sorry the image is a bit fuzzy.

Since they installed the new track we seldom see any deer.  There use to be lots of cover for them when the railroad tracks were still there but since their removal seeing a deer is very rare.  They come up from our Nature Center once in a while.  Once we had four Does in the front yard. Never got a picture of that group.

Muffin resting on the Deck

I caught, Muffin, as many of you know, our Feral Cat, resting on the deck the other day.  She is always available for a photo shoot.

Muffin on the Prowl

Muffin, our Feral Cat, was on the prowl, looking for who knows what, when I captured this image.  She looks either chubby or pregnant … there’s no way she could could be pregnant due to the capture, spade, and release program a number of years ago.  I managed a a slight bit of work in  Photoshop Elements 6 to sharpen and adjust the color so she’d look just like you’d see her in person. Enlarge for a better look!
