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.
Another wonderful morning out shooting wildlife and nature in the local area. Today I went to the Watershed Nature Center in Edwardsville. I had done shooting up there yesterday and wanted to go back. Just as I was finishing up I ran into this little fawn hiding in the grass. It was a bit wary of me but continued eating the grass for a few minutes then decided it had had enough of me and it took off. It is getting shots like this that make getting up early on my days off worth it.

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.
