Twins



What we will endure when safety withers and our paths obscure?

Beautiful animals. We have deer that live right in the middle of our town - we have a lot of wooded area in the city limits.

Great quote, too :-)

Nice catch! I never get close enough to the deer for photos. The greyscale is especially nice for these - gives them that "in the mist" quality. :)

Wait, it says trail camera... does that mean you have a camera mounted on a tree somewheres? Slick!

Wow, Jason. Those are so neat! They're so much nicer to see when they're not eating your landscaping.

aaww look at them. Very nice. The kiddos and I seen a mamma and her baby the other day passing in front of us. Then we seen one in the drive. It was a doe. I could not get my camera out of my purse fast enough to get a shot. I am going to have to lay on the car seat next time.

What a lovely, gentle photograph.

These deer look as though they've never known the wrong end of a gun or indeed seen many humans. Did they stay very long? Gorgeous photo, Jason.

I just love slipping over here every now and then to look at your photographs. You capture such beauty with your camera. thanks for sharing with us.

Sam, watching them in their element is a thrill. I'm not so fond of seeing them in the suburbs, though.

JLB, yes, this camera is tree mounted and senses heat and motion. The pictures it produces are an interesting mix of color and infrared. The infrared part is for invisible pictures in the darkness.

Jaye, good point! Population control is important. In parts of Pennsylvania, they are totally out of control. This area is very wild, though, so they have all the room they need.

Beady, I have to wonder if the deer are responding to increased hunting culls. I understand that more twins are born when the population is low.

Fringes, those deer are right up against the camera. The camera is automated and tree-mounted.

Normiekins, I love seeing them when I'm just sitting in the forest. They go about their business not knowing they're being watched.

Atyllah, thanks, my friend. :)

Addy, trails cameras are wonderful in how they capture the animals unaware. This area is very wild, so the deer tend to be more reclusive.

Angela, the dreamy quality of this camera's pictures is wonderful.

Sandra, it's always wonderful to hear when folks enjoy stopping here for a quiet moment. Thank you!

There's always animal instinct. We humans forget our roots.

Devon Ellington said...

Those pictures are gorgeous. Almost mystical. Truly lovely. Thank you.

jason evans said...

Anna, managing the herd is important, no doubt about that. ** Aren't those mushroom blooms cool?

Eileen, I'd like to take credit, but it's really the uniqueness of the camera. ;)

Mermaid, animal instinct is the truest choice, but many times it is inconsistent with human expectations.

Devon, thanks so much for the visit and kind words!
