Then we drove into Bedford which is approx. 23 miles from here. I wanted to go to Walmart and pick up a memory stick to back up my pictures on.
When we got back to the trailer I just had to get out on the golf cart, the sun was out and I needed a ''deer fix'', I am attached to these guys can you tell?? I went down the Bluegill loop which has a pond on it. The deer frequently drink from it and so I thought I might get lucky. Well I did. This one was coming up over the bank and she looked so cute standing there with only half her body showing and those big ears alert. She just stood there and looked at me while I shot the pictures.
|"Hey, have you heard any good gossip lately?''|
She finally just turned around and walked back down into the woods. Guess I was boring her :) I got this little guy sitting one of my pine cones on my lighted tree by the trailer door. He is a Katydid. It is evident they are around, they light up the night with their songs. "Katy did, Katy did"
|So cute he picked the pine cone to sit on, sure shows up doesn't he?|
|Don't they look thrilled :)|
|Cool how the color on the camper matches the leaves on the tree.|
You remember a couple of blogs ago I had a picture of a Persimmon Seed with a spoon on the inside which means lots of snow? I think the squirrels broke one open too, as they are super duper busy gathering nuts. They are everywhere in the park, jumping from tree to tree and the roads are just littered with nut shells where they have dropped them from above. They are hard to capture on film but I did manage to get a couple today.
|What's that? Oh you want to see one with a face....OK.|
|"Hurry up would ya, I've got nuts to gather!"|
Guess what???? Yep, you're right more deer. I was driving up the trail towards the road and I was talking to our daughter, Lindsay, on the cell phone when I looked to my left and there stood a deer just staring at me. I don't know who was more shocked me or her :)
|"Hey, who are you talking to?"|
|Look at those big brown eyes. So adorable!|
|Here is the Mama. Pretty face, and she looks pretty good.|
|Look at the difference in color between this one and the mom above.|
|"Hey, we know you."||Mom apparently does too look how unconcerned she is.|
|The leaves starting to turn in the back ground make a pretty contrast.|
|"Mom and Dad said we send hugs and best wishes, from Hardin Ridge."|
