These photos were taken on August 28, 2021 at 3:57 AM
The location was near an off road from Rock Creek Park with cuts through a lot of Washington DC
The "Take It!" came as this not so large deer ambled across the road I had turned on to, after making one of my usual stops. I was taken aback by his casual saunter and decided to make a U
Turn to catch a photo of him. He decided to move into a drive in front of a large apartment building which had a hedge in front of it which was just about at the height of his head. I
decided to take photos of the silhouette* of his antlers and not use the flash on my camera in order to not scare him off. While I am not a hunter - one can easily see he would have
been a prize for someone who was.
I drove away having enjoyed this brief glimpse of nature showing itself in the midst of all our turmoil.
Wishing everyone a chance to see some of the same where ever you are.
All my best
