The Weekly Smile

I was standing on the bank of a local river looking at the trees to see if any interesting birds were there, when I thought I saw movement on the opposite bank.DSCN4661

I zoomed in and was met with eyes looking back at meDSCN4650

and then more eyesDSCN4655

I smiled, glad I had seen something move as they blended in so well with the brush and I wouldn’t have otherwise.weeklysmile1

  1. Love these. Deer have multiplied greatly over the past years where we live, and they do like the shrubs and flowers, but careful plant selection and appreciation of their perfect “trimming” of hanging tree branches makes me feel good enough about co-existing together. Nice pictures. M πŸ™‚


  2. If they are in that top picture they do blend in! A couple of weeks ago, when I was in Virginia, I saw a deer. I snuck up as close as possible and took pictures with my phone. No matter how much I zoom in, I can only make out the deer in one picture. It’s always great to come across deer and other wildlife. Great smile! πŸ™‚


      • I guessed you were using a better camera with a good zoom lens. My phone takes great panoramas but is awful if I actually want to take a picture of some “thing”.


      • I’ve read that phones have destroyed the compact camera market. I can understand the convenience factor, but even a cheap camera is far more flexible and takes a better picture.


      • That makes sense I suppose. I was using a small compact camera in addition to my phone until I began to want to capture wildlife and the zoom and clarity were not good enough.
