The view from my perch on the mountain

Can You See Me Now?

How many deer can you find in this first shot?

It gets a little easier as they graze their way out of the tree line.

No matter how many times I see it I’m always amazed at how effective natural camouflage is.

While I’m still battling this seemingly never ending virus I am feeling some better. At least I have something right outside my back door to keep me entertained . These were shot hand held at a range of about 50 yards using a Sigma 150-500M image stabilized lens.

  5. Deer do blend well. They are difficult to distinguish among the trees, and leaves.

    Terrible to hear that you still have a nasty flu virus. I sure hope you will feel better soon.
