Weekend adventure…

It was a busy weekend. Out and about for pictures and Geocaching. Took my one daughter out Geocaching and while out we came across this lone deer. We could have gotten closer but my daughter has a nasty dry cough at the moment, which let the deer hear us a long way off; was amazed it stuck around as long as it did. Was hoping for a bit more of a reaction from my daughter on her first close-up with a wild deer but I think the wildlife park has ruined her.

I could hear the little one(s) screeching inside the nest when momma showed up with a snack…

Did a tilt-shift and a photo merge for this one, worked out pretty good I think.

Some quick photos…

I was driving home when I spotted this pair on one of the lampposts on the side of the road. So after going inside to grab my camera I walked back down the road in the hope that they were still there; and lucky for me they were. I have seen them flying around but never had a clear or long enough look to identify them, I was surprised to find that they were a pair of American Kestrel.

On the walk back home I noticed a splash of colour in the dirt, has spring finally sprung?
