Talk about blending into the background!
Mother Nature sure takes care to dress deer in winter's colors.
It was nearing sunset,
and the grove of olive trees south of the school
was a quiet feeding ground.
Nearly a dozen deer have
found this a safe place to graze,
and it's not unusual to see them
in late afternoon
as one drives slowly down the school entrance lane
before turning west to head home.
Momma moved forward
just before I snapped the picture,
as if to say, "Stay right here.
I'll let you know if we should run for protection."
