The Magic of Birds and Deer and Other Things in the Fall




A family of deer meandering the roadside at the Bosque del Apache. 


The one that got away. I wanted to stare and couldn't get myself situated fast enough with my camera.
I love that uplifted paw. There's mystery in that fur and bone.


The blue heron languid and regal. Those seemingly delicate legs that work with precision in tandem with their outstretched wings to take flight and land.


 The wonder of the sand hill cranes' yearly migration; such a life these creatures have.

I've been taking this two hour drive for  the past three years. It's an honor and humbling to witness the lives of these winged ones as they take rest during their journey south for warmer climate.  

...and she says  to her mate, "See, watch, I'll show you how."
