Yesterday I went back to the park where I was talking to the park official last week about the poison ivy. By coincidence I met her once again. I was just entering the heart of the park and I met her as she was on her way out. I never asked, but she must check this place at least once a week, maybe more.
We talked for a few minutes and she told me about a few deer she had seen a ways back. She told me last week about one she saw too, but I never found it. This time was very different. Not only did I get to see the three deer she told me about, but I also got some good pictures so you can see them too.
I just happened to see some movement off to my right, so I stopped to look. I'm getting pretty good at doing that now. At one time I never would have noticed this movement, but now I stop and turn at every little thing I see in the forest, just like the deer I saw this time when I turned to my right.
It's strange, but if you stay very still while looking at a deer it will stare right back at you for a good long time. I got several pictures that looked just like this one of this first deer. I was even able to change a few settings on my camera and zoom it in for a closer look. The deer barely moved.
It's often a rough decision to break this hypnotic spell with a deer. You know when you do it that the deer might run and you'll never see it again. As I had this one under my evil spell, I noticed another movement to the right. I turned to see not one, but two more deer moving around near this first one.
Of course, I still had this one right in front of me, so I turned back to get a few more shots, and my worst fear had begun to come true. The spell was lost and the first deer moved behind the trees. All hope wasn't lost though.
In this last picture you can see how easy a deer can make itself invisible in the forest. Look very closely. The deer is there. It's spying on me through the green of the forest. It's almost magic in its ability to hide right in front of you. Invisible!
The second deer didn't seem eager to come out so I could see it very well, but I have some excellent pictures of the third deer. I'll have to wait until another post to show some of those to you. I don't do this to treacherously make you wait through a cliffhanger; I only do it so I can save space in order to bring you posts for many years to come.
YEAH RIGHT! The next part of this post comes tomorrow! Mwaahahaha!
