We Were Graced...

I've been so anxious to share these photos with you...We were graced with the beautiful presence of this remarkable creature not long ago...he ended up about a metre and a half away from me and was breathtaking. I had never been that close to a deer before and I was so entranced I think I forgot to breathe for a couple minutes. Luckily I had my trusty camera with me and he didn't seem to mind me snapping away at least 50 or 60 photos....I picked just a few of my favourite shots to show you...when I open my photography shop I think these will defiantly be some of the first ones listed...
...Oh just so amazingly beautiful...I've no ideal how people can hunt these serenely innocent animals...BUT...my soul was made lighter and brighter for seeing and being near this creature, thats for sure.

How beautiful! Wow! It must have been magical to be able to get so close to such a beautiful animal. You must have felt truly blessed!

A big one. Great photos. We live where there is lots of cover, few predators, and little hunting. There are many and they are NOT shy! They EAT gardens, apple trees, roses, ...

But, still ...

Oh my God, they are beautiful. The one where she is licking her lips... (I mean, how many people can say they have snapped a deer's tongue?!) and then the last one where her nose is shining like a mirror... gosh.

And I'm with you on the cruelty thing. It makes me shudder and want to cry to think about it.

Love Charlotte

Oh he is beautiful. Makes me want to tear up. What a gift to be in his presence. He knew he was safe with you.

Not only was it a great opportunity to take some pictures, but we also kept him from crossing the busy street where that transport was coming down the hill. Our good deed for the day for sure.
