This morning I went up to a lake that I hadn't ever been to before. Its not that far out of town, just 10k (6mi)up a dirt road from the far end of town. For the last three days I've been out looking for deer. There were some spotted sandpipers at this lake: View attachment 11932 View attachment 11933 View attachment 11934 I also saw this ground squirrel but I couldn't get him to come out to play. Went home (my daughter needed the car for her summer job) and mowed the front lawn. Started to process some from the mornings take and my wife arrived home. She told me that there was a deer half a block up the road near the corner. Grabbed the camera and hurried up to corner and found not one but two bucks. The older buck: The younger one: I have to laugh - I spend 3 mornings hiking through the bush looking for deer and find them half a block away! All in all, a pretty good day.
