For this photo challenge I’ve chosen photos from one of my encounters with the deer at the Stones River Battlefield in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.
The deer are there every morning between 6:30am and 7:00am and they’re only visible for a short time in the morning before disappearing from view for the rest of the day. They won’t wait for you. They’re on their own schedule.
In the thicket you can get very close if you move slowly and with gentleness. Look away and they’re quickly gone blending right into the forest background.
I love the deer. They’re gentle souls.

I haven’t been on here much lately as I’ve started a new job. I’m already missing my mornings spent sitting here in front of the computer contemplating different thoughts on what to write about. Trying to get into a new morning routine.
My rose is from my old church, St. Rose of Lima in Tennessee. Saw it one Spring morning and had to capture it in all its glory. It reminds me to look for beauty in the simple things.
Photos taken at the Tennessee Aquarium.
Gives me a thrill to be so close to such creatures!
