I tread softly along the narrow path that leads up the mountain into the deep woods in hopes of spotting new life laying quietly in a thicket. Mama deer should be hiding her babies this time of year. The fawn’s reaction to an approaching human is usually to stay as still as possible and try not to give away it’s position. In the past I’ve even been able to creep within a few feet of a sleeping fawn and lay there pretending to nap with it. The deer on the farm where I grew up are under very little pressure from humans and are more trusting than the average deer. But on this day I was given away by the noisiest creature in nature. The Appalachian gray squirrel. Confident in his ability to escape the the little squirrel allowed his own curiosity to get the best of him and he stalked me while I stalked the deer. Once he decided that I was something to be avoided he took a higher position and began the loudest rant that he could muster. Violently shaking his bushy tail and chattering like mad he was one pound of full fury. Just out of sight and about a third of the way over the hill the crashing sounds of hooves through the brush announced that I would find no sleeping deer in the forest this time. The only thing I could say was “AW Nuts!”. Oh well, there will be another one soon. But for now, at least I have a photo of the Tattle Tale.
Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days!
For those who have been following me on Facebook and know of the struggle content providers have to get circulation from big tech I’ve been recommending for people to adopt MeWe as a social media platform. One of the problems I’ve run into on MeWe is that people don’t know how to navigate the platform. So to help with that I’ve created a permanent page on my website as a basic Basic Beginner’s Guide To MeWe I’ve tried to anticipate all basic questions there and You can bookmark the page to have as a reference and if you have any questions or suggestions don’t hesitate to contact me. I do still have a day job and I help admin several pages on both platforms so replies might be a little slow but I will answer you.
We also have the Lloyd’s Lens Photography Discussion Group on MeWe that is set up as a fully functional community. There you’ll not only be able to see and connect with me but you can also make your own posts and interact with each other.
