i caught a deer on camera!


So, I’ve told you about how there are animals all around at my work since it’s in the middle of a little foresty-park thing.  For Christmas I got a new camera with a nice zoom.  I like zoom and macro.  Lots.

Anyways, I take the camera with me whenever I go for a walk at work when I remember to take it to work in the first place.  I always look out for the deer or any other wildlife I can spot.  California quail, robins, the stray black cat, other random birds, foxes, apparently there’s a beaver around somewhere, and the deer.  I’ve been wanting to get a picture of the deer, but they don’t like to hold still or be in your line of sight.  However, I ran across one and we stared at each other for a while.  I already had my camera out, so I turned it on and snapped pictures.  Take picture, step closer, take more pictures, step closer again.  Third step and the deer ran off.

Here’s one of the pictures I took.  It only looks so close thanks to my nice zoom.  I was maybe twenty feet away.


Ta-da! Deer!

Cool, huh?  I can’t wait to go get more pictures of them!  Maybe I can get some pictures of the fawns when they start wandering around.  🙂  That would be fun.
