What a stunning photo! I just love the balance and the moment you have captured.
Great photo. Love the thoughts.
That looks like many pictures I have taken in my own yard! Sweet precious creations by God!
Interloper is right! Interloper and eater of all things growing in my yard.
So true! We ARE the interlopers!
Yes, indeed we are! Such a true interpretation of that look!
Who is the interloper? Who was here first? And who has eternal rights to this piece of land? Questions–just for fun…
Strongest wins today. And the battle restarts tomorrow. No?
Such good questions.
The photo is superb, that is undeniable! Thank you.
The story is right; the deer grabs me. They are wonderful creatures. Do you have hunters or is it a protected area?
There are hunters, but hunting rules are strictly enforced. Most folks here use the venison and it is a necessity. Still, the sound of gunfire shatters the serenity.
Yes, of course…I grew up in Mi. and often went “up north”, where hunting was entirely a way of life. I was never used to that sound, either; my family didn’t need or want to hunt. But I guess I accepted it. Thank you for the response.
