D is for Deer at Dusk

SDP 2-6-13
Those who follow SDP regularly know how much I enjoy visiting Myakka State Park in Sarasota, especially at dusk. The wildlife here really likes to come out and put on a show in the early evening, from wild boar to birds of prey to deer.  When I spotted this deer standing alone near the river getting a drink, the scene seemed almost too perfect. Serenity at dusk.  To see other submissions for the letter D visit ABC Wednesday.

In other news, I heard from Lexi the goldendoodle's human yesterday.  Good news -- Lexie got her stitches out already.   Apparently, neither the stitches nor the cone slowed her down.  Way to go, Lexie!  They're already planning their next trip to Sarasota with lots of beach romping and rock chasing for Lexie.

Excellent shot. I'll be looking forward to more of your wildlife photos from the park.

You must have the patience of a Florida Panther to capture shots like these.

A dainty looking little creature. Almost like Bambi.

Deer are the most beautiful creatures, and you captured this one nicely.

Extra points for the alliteration.

And the deer moved to its best side to give you a fine profile.

Hazel Ceej said...

Lovely shot. She's beautiful (why did I say she? :) ) Reminds me of Bambi.
