Another Reason to Love Living in Cottage Country

>> Tuesday, June 2, 2009

I was outside talking to my sister in law and her husband today and this is what we saw in the field immediately across the street from my house.

I love cottage country!

    I live on a lake and we have some wonderful critters too, but I could never get photos like you do. What is your photographic secret?

    What a beautiful deer. The deer in our neighborhood drive our dog insane. They stand across the street where he can't reach and taunt him.

    I have a Kodak camera, Patricia... it does a lot of the work for me... I also have a tripod, which I used to use a lot with my previous camera - that one broked and when I sent it in for repairs they sent me a POS replacement that runs through batteries like they're going out of style... so it really doesn't work with the tripod, since I can't use the viewer or I have to replace the batteries every few shots.

    Hopefully I'll get a new one for Christmas this year.

    Beautiful shot! We really miss seeing deer around the neighborhood since moving to north Texas. They are so much fun to watch.

    We were coming home from Walmart tonight and all of a sudden my son yells "deer!" WTH? We were on Route 30 (a major road) and it just ran across the 4 lanes and then ran across the Metra tracks. Where the deer came from it had to have just crossed Interstate 80. Lucky deer!

    Very pretty - it was like it just stopped and said 'take my picture'!

    That's simply beautiful, Flit. You really are lucky.

    Beautiful picture! Deer are lovely, graceful creatures. I love to watch them.

    Beautiful! We live in a pretty populated area, but there are lots of forest preserves around, so we occasionally see a deer every now and then. To me, it's as magical as seeing a unicorn.
