One of the pleasures of working at HottyToddy.com is the view of nature we enjoy right outside our building.
I’ve photographed Cardinals in the past, and this morning around 7:30 a.m., I was treated by a visit from a beautiful doe. She had no fear of me as I approached with my camera and stared right into my lens with discerning eyes.
She moved a bit up the grass hill toward the brush. She chomped on some low-hanging leaves for a while, sharing the bright, cool morning sunshine with this strange-looking human with a black cylinder sprouting out of his head like a misplaced antler.
I took several shots and then, as I moved a step closer, she scampered back into the woods — not in fear — but simply to tell me it was time to go and attend to other deer business.
