Double Your Pleasure

The best time to see wildlife is early morning and late evening.

The best time (for me) to read scriptures is first thing in the morning before anyone else gets up.  It’s so peaceful and quiet.

I set up a chair next to the window so I could enjoy God’s creations while I read about them.

A time for every season

As soon as I looked out I see the twin fawns running and jumping around the yard.  They were chasing each other; while mom was eating apples I presume.

They ran out of sight.  When they came back the 2nd time they darted across the yard, stopping at the edge, and then back again.

What’d you say?

The next time I saw them, they were just grazing along the side of the yard.  I had sneaked out onto the deck to get better photos.  I didn’t even try to photo them while they were playing.  They were too fast.  I just enjoyed watching them play.

The one above was listening intently to the chipmunk’s incessant chirping.  Then he went back to grazing.  I think they saw me but I tried to be very still so I didn’t startle them.

Then these Mergansers all splashed the water at once.  That startled the twins.  The fawns darted away and I didn’t see them the rest of the day.

I was so focused on the deer that I don’t know if the splash was from the Mergansers landing or if they all popped up to the surface after a dive.

It’s fun to watch children (human and animal) entertain themselves.
