Tuesday's Surprise

Just as I got on trail at the marsh, today,
I saw a Yellow Warbler, and just below the
tree, It was not a bird, a beautiful Doe
was eating quietly and she did'nt know I
was there. Did'nt have any decent angle.
Could barely see her thru the branches.
I know that my lens has 9 degrees angle
to deal with, so I played with that.













A few more HERE through the branches

She knew you were there - she was looking right at you. I suspect she knew you were harmless.

Hey Tom, Thanks!
Yes she knew...
I did'nt move but for 1 or 2 degrees
with the cam lens...
She was so beautiful, at that distance...
How can she not be...
Thanks again Tom

Very beautiful! Such large eyes, and you still managed to catch the light even with all the obstacles - well done!

Thanks Erica,
This is what I call, earning your photo, it's almost as hard as working :-)

Beautiful Mike, but I think she spotted you too ;-)

MikeyBoy50 said...

Thanks Chris
But the first shot I took was'nt good as she was not looking at me but was looking down and eating.

So I did'nt publish it. I now realize that this pic gives a false impression of what really happened...

Anyway it was good to be there...

What a pleasant surprise - her eyes were glued on you :-) Good job focusing through all those leaves and branches!

Thanks much Cindy and Bird Girl,
It sure is a surprise to see her at that distance (10 to 12 feet).
