Yesterday evening as I set up my tripod and camera to take the above photo on the opposite bank of the pond, I saw a doe pause to the right of the above area.
I regretted that I hadn’t been 30 seconds faster and had been able to capture the doe and her reflection as well as the tangle of roots.
After taking the photo, I scanned the pond, looking for wildlife. I saw something small and reddish moving toward the tangle, rushed to the camera and snapped a couple more photos. I wasn’t sure what I’d seen, as it was about 100 yards away.
When I got the photos up on my screen, I was amazed to see a tiny dappled fawn entering the tangle . . .
. . . and then up through the tangle to disappear into the weeds, where I suspect the doe was waiting.
