Camera-Critters #23

She woke up, got dressed, and went to pick up her photos from the fair. After spending some time speaking with the man in charge of the photography contest/exhibit (and posing for her photo with her Best of Show winner), she turned with a new found sense of pride and headed out the door, when she heard the gentleman say, "Get out of here and get out there to get some more great photos!"

"Oh yes." she thought, "That is exactly what I'm going to do."

She arrived home, quickly changed clothes, and headed out for a photo-walk. She relished in the peace and calm of the nature around her... her favorite place to be. She looked up and took this shot and thought, "I'll post that for Sky Watch on Friday." (later, she ended up choosing other Sky Watch shots though hehe)

On the way back from the walk, returning to the house, she thought to herself, "Well, it was a nice walk anyway. I got some decent shots... nothing spectacular, but I certainly enjoyed myself." Then, she heard a voice (please don't call to have her committed) which said, "Look UP... NOW!" Honestly, this 'voice' was so apparent that she actually responded with "Huh?". Then... she heard a sound.

Funny thing... it sounded just like her puppy, a.k.a. Thunder-Hooves, when she sees cattle or some other sort of fun herding entertainment and takes off running full speed... But... what in the world? How in the heck would the puppy be clear back here in the field by the woods? What in the.........




She saw it........ it rounded the corner along the woods and came running directly at her...



"WHOA - she really IS coming straight for me!"

"Brace yourself, Mist, cuz this might hurt a little bit."

(c) Misty DawnS

She planted her feet, held her camera to her eye, and watched in amazement as the thunder-hoofed creature was looking right past her and running straight for her. Then, she took a photo... the shutter opened and closed, and the critter came to a screeching halt...

"What the? Where the heck did this human-chic come from?!?!"
(c) Misty DawnS

"Hmmmm, I don't know where she came from, but
she makes my ear twitch."
(c) Misty DawnS

"This human-chic looks harmless enough... almost like
she thinks I'm beautiful or something."
(c) Misty DawnS

"Yep, I'm concluding that this human-chic isn't too much of a danger."
(c) Misty DawnS

"Hmmmm, I wonder how long it's going to take her to realize that
she needs to start breathing again."
(c) Misty DawnS

"Oh well, I'm off now. I think I just made that chic's day!"

Perhaps she had an important meeting to discuss how to create quality Dallas resumes. Whatever it was, she needed to get there fast.

Lovely experience and great presence of mind to keep clicking away.


That had to be an amazing experience. The excitement of having something like that happens seems to stay with you forever.

Great photos, my friend!


Congratulations on your "Best of Show", at the fair and thanks for sharing the experience with the whitetail fawn. They are truly captivating creatures.


Love the additional ‘sky watch’ this morning … but the ‘deer series’ makes me wish I lived out in the country somewhere where I’d encounter deer too … almost ;--)
Hugs and blessings,


those shots were amazing!!! how close were you? thanks for visiting, and blackie still says "no thanks" to being friends with a dog..

(trust me, he freaks when the neigbhor's cat comes into our back yard.. and blackie is safe in the house!)

Oh my, what a great piece of luck!

I really envy you! Me and my frogs in this country.


Hey Misty, awesome deer. :)

I just wanted to give you a heads-up, since you specifically asked for info: Cody has been adopted!

I'll put more information up on the Pooch Page on the 17th (I think that's when I have his next picture queued up for), but I thought I'd just let you know!

Maria Verivaki

i think i'd go freaky if this deer was running up to me, but she does look a cutie


Ohh, a close encounter to die for!
But I'm glad you didn't.


Wonderful shots of the deer and the sky watch. I like how you told the story as well. And yes it stinks that the geese had a party at my place and left me out.


Isn't it great to be able to experience something like this and photograph it as well? Thanks so much for sharing this!
