|photo by Jonathan Schechter|
Today was one of those days I am glad my camera was with me even though my short
rainy morning walk was on my own property.
I was just about back to my house when I noticed movement.
Something was on last year's leaf/mulch pile.
I zoomed the telephoto out -wishing I had a tripod to steady the camera - to see what caught
my attention. Ears pointed out at me. Ears I know well.
I was tempted to caption this photo, "Deer sits on her eggs." Maybe I will repost this next
April Fool's Day with that very caption.
But what is actually happening is just awesome.
Decomposing leaves produce warmth.
And if you are a deer on a chilly moist morning in Michigan what better place for a morning nap!
