Not to the blog — to my yard! I know that the deer are in the woods in the summer, but they are rarely seen. Once the leaves start falling, their presence is more apparent. Although I only saw this one, she seemed to be looking into the brush for her companions. I took a few shots out the window. I went to the door to step onto the patio for a closer shot, but as soon as she espied me, she tore off frantically over the top of the hill.

I bought my first SLR camera (a Yashica TL-ELECTRO) when I was 17 and imagined I would become a great photographer. My love of photography, unfortunately, was thwarted by a photo-journalism class (the first "C" in college, but not the last!) as well as several packages of accidentally exposed photo paper and the high cost of film on a student budget. An unexpected gift of a Canon Rebel xSI four years ago reawakened those old, dormant dreams. A bit wiser now, I knew that photog instructor was full of bs even if technically he was pretty good. I began snapping away and haven't looked back. Mostly, I shoot nature photography because flowers and rocks don't talk back at you when you pose them.
