“Study nature, love nature, stay close to
nature. It will never fail you.”
Frank Lloyd Wright
I love quietly walking through the forest "camera hunting" for wildlife. I continually scan the territory around me looking for the slightest movement in grass, or willows or branches, and listen for any sounds of life. It has a sweet aniticipation that comes with the unknown. Each forest has a different sound. I love an aspen forest yet it's more challenging to walk quietly through than some pine forests. Just staying still is sometimes the best thing...
I was headed camera hunting this evening to photograph shades of fall and whatever birds and critters I might see along the way. The first animal I saw was this deer. He stood curiously watching me. It was nice....
I took a lot of photos while he studied me.
I whistled every now and then to get him to move or give me an expression. He didn't know what to think but he just kept looking.
I saw 7 deer total this evening..
He finally decided to go ...
After the first two deer, I spotted this pair of woodpeckers.
Fall is in the air and starting to color the hillsides. I wish summer would last longer. Does an early fall mean an early winter?? I guess time will tell.
I love these rust colors...

I visited the Tiger Temple in Thailand & later found out it is under investigation for tiger trafficking and animal abuse. Read full story. In 2015 it was raided. More than 100 tigers and protected bird species in Wat Pa Luang Ta Bua, popularly known as the Tiger Temple in Kanchanaburi province were impounded by authorities following complaints that the temple was alleged to engage in illegal wildlife trading.

even a blade of grass, it becomes a mysterious,
awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself."
