A Lovely Sight

I was at the park, and I started to walk up the hill and noticed something in the distance.  I thought it was just a walker, but to my surprise....

What a sight!  How often do we see a deer at our nearby park?  It stopped and looked at me, then started coming closer onto the grass.

It just stayed there for the longest time eating the grass and observing me.

Then, someone's car started up, and the deer ran away and headed back to where she came from.

Have a good weekend, dear.

Now there looks a familiar sight Sheri! Our deer just strolled by the kitchen window to drink at the bonzai bowl (I keep fresh water for them there).
Wishing you a nice peaceful weekend!

Beautiful post! Around here the deer come into the yards sometimes...and eat people's gardens. Their habitat has been destroyed..they have nowhere to go. Beautiful animals...and sad. Your pictures are great!

It's me said...

We always have t be s careful when we drive down a certain stretch of road...they come tearing across in groups of three or four. Such graceful creatures.

I can imagine how wonderful this moment was to you. We also have a park near by and in the early morning hours (when I am out for walking with my neighbour friend) we often see deer on the meadows. Unfortunately I never have a camera with me.

It's always so sweet when once of God's wild creatures crosses your path.

You were able to capture such peace moments in your pretty images!

"One"...not "once"!
Sheri! I am visiting you for lunch at my desk at work...and had a slight distraction.

Now, back to your post, such a sweet retreat!

Sheri, Those are great photos. I don't expect to see deer in our park. I have seen as many as eleven across the road coming out of the little woods. I have binoculars handy to see the birds, so I got to watch them go done into a ditch line and across the corn fields. hope you have abeautiful weekend. oxox,Susie

I love to see deer. They are so beautiful. What a lovely encounter.

Oh wow Sheri! That's so cool. It looks like you could've reached out and touched it. I'm always in awe of God's nature. Again sooo cool.You don't see that every day!

How wonderful for you to get up close and personal with the deer.
I'm surprised it did not run. Dern that car...LOL
You got some great shots of her. I would call that a good day. I raise peacocks and Loving the babies. I wish I could Keep them all. Nature at its best.

My favorite animal in the world.

So much humanity in its life that is indeed a kind of magic - for some reason they were, for centuries, known as the "fairy cattle"; a magic you caught so well in the pics.

Christianity is riddled of examples of men transformed upon meeting and staring this magnificent animal.

So glad you were there and shared the sighting with us.

Love you, Pretty Soul,

They are so pretty but so destructive in the garden! They come right up to the front of my house and up the brick path to my side door! I wish they would find someplace else to visit. But you are right they are special when not feeding in your garden. Have a great week, Laura

Kerri said...

Oh I love animals of all kinds, not only dogs. Thanks for sharing your deer photos, how nice it was to get that close! My mom and I just got back from road trip & dog show. I updated my blog so you can see :)
Have a blessed week!
