A Lil’ Inspiration #28

Accidental Beauty Is The Best!

I'm not sure how many deer are in this photo because they blend in so well with the trees.

Beauty in all its forms can be so breathtaking. Stumbling upon it totally by accident is sublime. There is absolutely no way I could have captured these photos had I planned it.

So this morning as I was walking Mollie, my furkid, I happened upon a huge moving blur. Now because I’m 97% coward and 3% human my initial response was to run. I mean my keen sense of detection picked up that Molliekins and I were in imminent danger and the only way to save our skins was to get the heck outta dodge.

Well after I calmed myself a bit my curiosity got the better of me so real stealthy like I hid behind a car, pointed my camera phone in the direction of the beast and shot. One of the problems one encounters when you can’t see and you encounter a stranger in your environment is not knowing what “it” is. My first thought was to magnify but with the sun at my back my screen was black so I just kept shooting. So what a surprise when I come inside and see I caught a gang of deer pretending to be trees. I guess I scared them as much as they scared me.
