Every morning I say hello and talk to the young deer just off my walking path. My daughter thinks I am a little whacky because I talk to the animals. Maybe, I am?
As I watch the woodland changes and see the animals, I like to interact with them. When I see the geese nesting I remind them as I pass through everyday, that I will not hurt them. I just like to see their progress.
When I see the deer in the woods, I say good morning and tell them they chose to live in a beautiful place or something similar.
Since I do this everyday, they get use to my presence. They get comfortable with me being there and my voice.
Today, instead of hiding and watching me through the woods, this buck came out and greeted me. I walked directly past him. He moved to the left, watched me pass and twitched his tail.
I told him after I past I would love to get a picture of his horns growing in.
When I turned back around, I expected him to be gone. But, he stuck around and I grabbed a few shots and then went on my way.
Have I told you lately that I just absolutely love nature?
