Oldie but Goodie : Look What is in Your Backyard!

This in an older blog post of mine and a great reminder that you do not always have to travel to an exotic location to photograph nature! Enjoy your backyard!

These photos were taken over a two day period. The fawn and momma deer appeared late one afternoon in the yard. Patience did not pay off that day as the baby deer was mostly shrouded by shrubbery.

The following afternoon the fawn made an apparently solo return trip to munch on berries in a back garden for what seemed like 15-20 minutes providing a great photo op.

While photographing the scene from a upper story window I looked down and saw this bright red cardinal perched on a feeder. Some days things just click!
