I went on a little walk-about yesterday to see what I could see, and this is just a sample of the 120 pictures I shot within a 1 hour period in the little town I live in here in Colorado.
I call this picture "Mikhail Baryshnigoose in Goose Lake" When I arrived at the park, these two geese were right on the tree line but I was able to coax them up to within 5 feet of me. The female was so comfortable in my presence that she actually lay down and took a short nap.
This is our neighbor 'Shorty'. All the squirrels in our neighborhood are named 'Shorty', only because we can't tell them apart. Shorty stopped by yesterday for a little snack of sunflower seeds. He wasn't too happy when my husband arrived home and stood on the buffet table.
Whitetail deer are not indigenous to Colorado. They are considered a nuisance and are rapidly taking over the grazing grounds of the local mule deer and elk. Oh, but they are beautiful!
