  1. I was out yesterday looking for an impressive buck that I saw last week ....course didn't have my camera with me then. No deer...but I ran across this little guy who gave me all kinds of fun.

    What's that expression, chance favors the prepared mind? That third one is really a nice flight shot. Nice job.
