If you are a regular here, you will be aware that I regard Sneaky Deer as dangerous, intrusive and, well… sneaky. Elizabeth took a photograph this morning that proves I’m right. This big buck was so sneaky that I missed him. Not that I could have done much from inside my ‘run’. And Elizabeth was silly enough to step out into the morning fog without me. I had no idea what she was up to when she walked past the path to my house, camera in hand. I thought she was taking another of her tree pictures, even when I heard her mutter, “****! I wish I had my telephoto with me!”
Go and get it, I thought. I’m not going to say anything out loud when she’s in that sort of mood!
Now I see why she didn’t go back for it, though. She had to take the shot and hope. ‘Cause Sneaky Deer, particularly Sneaky Deer bucks, are very sneaky this time of year. Blink, as you two-leggers say, and they’re gone!
