This seems to be a favorite hangout with the deer set lately. They're usually out near the end of the day. I really need to get a better lens to capture stuff like this. They were mebbe 200 yards from my back door.
I thought there was a baby following one of the does, and sure enough I could clearly see it in a lot of the photos, and much clearer than I could see with no glasses on.
Out for my nightly walk Tuesday, a cottontail rabbit sat looking much too casual and comfortable as I walked to within a few feet of him. There's a rainbow of wildflowers in bloom now, and the thistles are bursting forth like gangbusters. I saw a hummingbird buzz the prickly pear out front a couple weeks ago, too. Rattlers notwithstanding, I'm loving the rugged wilderness so close at hand.
I'm told this area will feel a lot like Dallas this summer, only windier. I suppose that means it'll be like walking around in the blast from a frighteningly large hair dryer. *shrug* In for a penny, in for a pound.
