I had a lot of fun with Mary when she shot these fantastic pictures!
As I sat down to paint this morning, movement in the field on the other side of the pond caught my attention. The distance, about 250 yards, from the window was a bit far for a nice shot. Tim and I quietly slipped around the south side of the dam, then belly crawled to get within 100 yards. This nice black-tailed buck in rut was watching a doe by one of the lower ponds.
We must have been a sight, laying on our bellies, in the rain soaked grass, stalking the deer for a photo. The buck did not notice us at all. He was captivated by her scent. She was nervous, people crawling through the grass and taking aim her way was more than she could stand. She bolted up the hill and over the ridge with him in hot pursuit.
Gotta sneak bliss when you can, even when…

Thanks for reblogging Mary’s blog. I subscribed to her today. It’s so nice of you to share her photos on your blog.
You’re welcome. I love her blog.
I enjoyed reading about you and Mary sneaking up on the deer to get the photos. I am pretty new to your blog and I did not know your wife is also an artist. I think you and Mary are such a good looking couple. It matters a lot when both husband and wife have major interests in common. I will be subscribing to Mary’s blog also. I am so glad that you did this post.
Thank you so much Yvonne. I have to say, Mary is a pretty special lady, which make me a lucky guy.
