As I was finishing up tending to my flowers, I spotted something out of the corner of my eye. A beautiful doe (a female deer) walked across our driveway. I stood very still, clippers in hand, garden gloves and all. Watching her graze on the empty lot next door, eating the fruits of the tree and bushes while she gracefully moved closer to me. It took her a while to spot me and I kept thinking that I should run and get my camera. In doing so, I knew she would be startled and run off. After she spotted me,we stared at each other for what seemed minutes before she pranced off and down the street.
So, I did go in and get my camera and decided to walk the area where I saw her run and enjoyed the peacefulness of a Sunday afternoon. Although I never did see her again, I enjoyed the walk and snapped photos along the way.
A lovely statue and a good subject for my next angel painting.
Thanks to my lovely deer visitor, I took the time to enjoy my surroundings and capture the moment.
