When You Suddenly Realize That You’re Not Alone

Hello friends! Tonight’s feature image is titled “Deer Family 81019” and is available for purchase by following the instructions at the bottom of the article.

My big blue truck rolls through my uncle’s pasture as I approach the old grove of black walnuts. The little meadow down in the lower corner of the farm was always a special place for me. As a child I would sit for hours on a flat rock in the middle of a marsh and just take in the nature at the base of a spring.

On the particular day I took the picture I was milling about when I suddenly felt like I was being watched. You might think it’s just cliche but it’s real. I have seen bears and other predators in this spot before so I froze in place and rolled my eyes in the direction that I felt the gaze coming from. My eyes are not what they used to be but I saw something moving in the deep shadows. Fortunately, there were no bears this time. It was just a family of deer trying to figure out if I was dropping off food for the cattle. They like to hijack the sweet grain and mineral supplements if they get a chance. In fact a low tech way of removing a tree stump is to salt it. A mixture of mineral salt, vitamins and molasses is poured into the stump around the roots and over the stump until it’s saturated. The stump is then abandoned. Within a few days the deer will dig it out for you as they try to get their dietary supplements out of the ground. At this point there’s no feral pigs in my area but it’s a safe bet that they would be even quicker at rooting out the stump.

Today however, there’s no prizes for the deer that show up. I began to move and behave as if I never noticed them and they soon slipped back into the shadows that lay beyond the ferns.
