I happened to look out the window the other morning and saw this deer in the back yard so I tried to quietly sneak out the front door, around the corner and towards the back. What I need are some deaf deer if I want pictures because they hear everything and they’re such chickens! Yes, I know . . we should be baling that grass we’re cutting back there. Make that . . the grass Vince is cutting. My grass cutting days are over, I hope. I had a little accident on the lawn mower in Owensboro taking a turn down a hill too quickly so now I tell Vince . . Honey, I would cut the grass but I’m afraid. Remember that accident I had in Owensboro? He just looks at me and I know he’s thinking . . but this yard is perfectly flat but as long as he cuts it, even though he only cuts it half as often as I would, I can live with it.
I took the picture of the first deer and then I saw a second and then a third and then the mom and the two fawns. I really need to order the 70-300mm lens so I can get better pictures of the wildlife in my back yard. This was taken with the 55-200mm and it was a bit out of range — I guess — I still don’t know what I’m doing with this darned camera. It was just getting to be daylight too so that didn’t help the pictures, and I was taking them without my glasses so I didn’t have a clue what my settings were. But, I still want the 70-300mm lens, so I’m just going to pretend that the pictures are blurry/grainy because I need that lens.
On second thought . . a closer shot might not be needed. Lady! I know you see me because you’re just fixing to run. Where are your manners? There’s a whole forest behind those trees and you’re doing that in my yard??
