I'm in Heaven
I was driving around on the golf cart today and I said to myself out loud..."I'm in Heaven." When I was a little girl my parents built a home in the middle of a big woods. My brother owned many acres of it and my uncle owned several acres too that was right next to my brother's. So I was free to go any where and not be trespassing. Plus, that was back in the day when you could go walking by yourself and not be afraid. I would walk to my uncles' property which was right on Sugar Creek. I would take my fishing pole and maybe a peanut butter sandwich and fish all day. I caught nothing worth keeping but I was so happy being there in nature. I have raised many baby raccoons and turned them loose back into the wild, and some would come back from time to time begging for a marshmallow :) I went hunting with my older brothers, and ice skating on the creek, and horse back riding in the woods, and we had hayrides in the winter THAT was a blast. So being in here in the forest takes me back to those feelings of my childhood. And of course having a new camera, a Nikon L810 is making picture taking a thrill. What cameras do today is amazing. I have mentioned before I love pine trees, well my other favorite is acorns. I saw these 2 laying on the ground (snuggling) and just couldn't resist a picture. It turned out so neat I am using it for my background on the computer. Hope you like it.
Look at her left cheek, she looks like she has a wad of chewing tobacco. Next picture she spits...just kidding.
I photographed deer in 4 places in the park so I am not sure where each one was. But this one is one of my favorites. Looks like a picture, ha ha. Wish it was a little sharper though.
