Taking a Walk

I took a walk the other morning in the Effie Yeaw nature center after I dropped off Lindsey at school. It was still pretty early, and I was greeted with about a dozen deer, and several wild turkeys.

Here, a young 2-pointer with barely any antlers scratches his back.



This fawn belongs to that buck. The buck wandered away and left the fawn alone with momma to face me, the menacing human.


















A little closer down by the river I found this doe and her fawn, watching me intently. All told I think I saw 4 fawns.




















The doe was keeping a watchful eye on me, while a small group of wild turkeys walked by and perched up on an old log.


















A little closer to the river's edge, these two deer were eating quietly in a clearing.
















I'm told on a good morning one can see even more wildlife, but I didn't have all that much time. It sure was a neet change from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Considering this wildlife area is in the middle of town, that's a nice thing.

Those are the kinds of pictures I've always wanted to take.
