Mom & Baby

As I was out walking in the SIUE Nature Reserve I stumbled across this doe and her fawn. We watched each other for a few moments then mom had enough and they went back into the trees. It is moments like this that make getting up early and going out to shoot photos worth it.

Friday Morning Shots

Since I have the day off, and my camera is back from the service center I went down to Cahokia Mounds and Horseshoe Lake this morning to get some photos. The deer were out in the park and I was able to pretty much walk right up to them. Lots of people were walking and running through the park and they deer didn’t seem to mind. Besides the deer saw lots of turkeys too. At Horseshoe Lake got to see plenty of Great Blue Herons and as a bonus two Little Green Herons. Not too bad of an outing.

Having a bite

Came across these three wonderful deer today at Cahokia Mounds. They kept an eye on me but kept on eating. The little one was more nervous than mom.
