Deer Season 2000: (Scouting)

(July) A Rare and Wonderful Treat
Ever get that feeling that something is watching you? While I was looking around for deer and sign this morning I got that feeling, big time. I slowly checked around me and saw a familiar figure about 15 yards away, watching my every move. I raised my digital camera up and snapped this picture.

For Wallpaper of this pic: 1028x800, 800x600, 640x480

The fawn watched me for awhile and surprisingly lost interest in me. It moved around a bit and browsed on some green sprigs. I zoomed in close.

Then it stopped and peed. As I took its pic it looked back in my direction.
Before long the fawn walked out of my view.
I circled around  some trees to see if I could intercept the fawn. Then I sat down so I could see up under the low branches and looked carefully around me. I spotted the fawn browsing. I thought, "What great luck," and lined the deer up in the viewfinder and took another pic.

Something very cool happened just then ...
