Here's a little story I witnessed in our back yard a couple of mornings ago. I was looking out our kitchen window and saw a doe feeding near our deck. Grabbing my camera and opening the door as quietly as possible, I stepped out on the deck to photograph her.
A slight movement caught my eye about 50 yards away. Mr. Buck had noticed me and was headed my way. "No you don't! Keep away from my gal!"
Our cat, Hollie-Three-Bell-Huntress, was sitting on the deck railing observing this little drama. Mr. Buck gave her a look too, but she remained undaunted.
Finally Mr. Buck hearded his Misses in the opposite direction. With one backward, ear-down, warning glance, they departed.
I have some beady things to post next, but am waiting for a day without the current deluge so I can photograph outside in natural light.
Robin & Robert report: Robert continues to regain his strength and move around with greater ease every day ~ the good news. We are not yet sure that the surgery will improve his back pain problems. So far, it's actually worse ~ the not so good news. My cold is way better, almost gone ~ the yipeee news. Thanks again for your good wishes. We both appreciate it.
