Our walk with surprises!
Tuesday, June 23, 2020
Our normal walking place right now, because it has wide paths so we keep to one side and people we meet keep to the other, has two ponds in the middle of the walking paths and a river on one side, plus a forested area along with prairie. The prairie part almost became a solar farm! But that has now gone by the wayside.
Imagine our surprise upon seeing this on the path!
It was funny. We were several feet away and the claws were up in defensive position.
From the side:
About three inches long. We could not figure where he was heading as both the pond and the river were equidistant.
Later as we were on the last stretch of path back to the parking lot two does walked across the path. Really we walked slow and quiet while one doe crossed. The second stood by the path until we passed and then she walked across.
On the way home, at a busy corner but with lots of open space in front of trees, we saw a fawn, still with lots of spots. Surprising day!!
