New Season, New Life

We have an unoffical contest in our house every spring...who will see "Bambi" first. This year, I won:). This morning I looked down the path in back of our house and saw a deer. Picking up the ever handy binoculars I wanted to see if it was a doe or buck. As I focused closer I saw the tiny fawn, on spindly legs, hiding in back of this cautious doe. All spots and big eyes, this little one followed mama down the path, going back and forth from one brushy side to the other. Both eventually vanished into the brush, where mama tucked her new one away for the day.

I stood in wonder, then quickly called my other half to tell him who won the contest this year. Of course he was glad....the winner is everyone.

Grab your binoculars and look closely at all the joys of spring.
