Doe…A Deer…A Female Deer…

 

 

Every time I least expect it, I look out my kitchen window and see anywhere from one to four deer in my front yard. As far as I’ve been able to tell, there are three mother deer with five babies between them (well, they’re no longer babies as their spots are gone). I try to take as many pictures as I can when I notice them, but sadly (sadly for me, good for them) I see less of them during hunting season.

 

 

I noticed this doe because of one of my cats. She (my cat) was staring out the window and when I went to look, there was a deer in my yard. I’m not sure which family group this one belongs to or if she was just a loner that wandered into my yard. It would help if they wore name tags so I could identify them. [-_^]

 

It’s funny that I see more deer in my yard than I do when I’m out on a hiking trail.

 

 

Until next time…

Bangor Bunny

Apologies for this week’s post being a late, faithful readers.  I’ve been busy working on photos for a client.  But hey, it’s still Monday, right?  [-_^]

Anyway, those of you that follow my blog already know how excited I get to see wildlife while I’m out hiking or riding my bike.  It’s rare that I see things other than squirrels, chipmunks, birds, and the occasional snake or seal (on coastal trails), so when I come across a deer (see this post), I’m ecstatic.  But it’s even more rare that I spot a wild rabbit.

A while ago, I went for one of my last bike rides of the year in the Bangor City Forest and as I came around a curve in the trail, I saw this little guy (or gal) just hanging out, munching on clover.

Super cute!

Until next time…

Having Some Gaming Fun

 

 

 

So last week (a few days ago, in fact) I leveled up!

 

To those that don’t speak nerd/geek lingo, that means it was my birthday. And for said birthday I finally snagged a copy of the new Legend of Zelda game, Breath of the Wild. It’s super awesome and I’ve already sacrificed countless hours of my life to it with no regrets!

 

In honor of my birthday gift to myself, here’s a picture of Link I took while out hiking a while ago…

 

 

 

 

Until next time…

Finding A New Local Trail

It’s always awesome when I stumble upon a new trail.  Especially when it’s local.

Recently, I found that the trail system in Machias had been expanded.  I’m not sure when this happened.  For all I know, these trails could have existed all along and I just never realized it.

Anyway, I decided to check out the new portion of trail.  Along the route, I came across an old car (I think it was a station wagon), rotting into the ground.  Every time I come across a crumbling vehicle in my hiking adventures, I always wonder about them.  Who did they belong to?  Why were they left?  And how did they get here?

As I was circling the car, taking a few pictures, I noticed something both odd and funny…

 

This little dude was just hanging out and again, I got to wondering what the deal was with him. Who made him? Who put him here? Why?

 

The things you find when hiking.

 

 

Until next time…

Roque Bluffs Wildlife Sighting

 

 

 

Typically, when I go for a hike, my wildlife sightings tend to be limited to birds, squirrels, chipmunks, snakes, and seal (when I‘m hiking a coastal trail that is). It’s quite rare that I see anything else. I still treasure the time I spotted a wild bunny on Campobello (I spotted two more on a bike ride a while ago so that was cool).

 

Well, on a recent hike at Roque Bluffs State Park, I spotted something I hardly ever seen on the trail.

 

I was moving right along, my mind in my own little world, and I came around a bend through some trees and saw this gal…

 

 

 

She was just standing there. I expected her to bolt when she saw me. Nope. I told myself “She’ll take off the minute you go for your camera.” But, again, nope. She stayed right there, staring at me, and let me get a few pictures.

 

I love wildlife sightings.

 

 

 

Until next time…
