The End of the Trail

I had spent several hours on the Nature Trail at the park, hoping to see something special - the fledgling Barred Owls out in the trees with one or both of their parents.  I had walked around the loop a couple of times, and back and forth along the part of the trail where I had usually seen the male howl over the past few weeks, and seen no sign of any owls.  As I was heading out of the park to go home, near the end of the trail I spotted this pair of White tailed deer, which I think is probably a Yearling Doe and her mother, grazing back a little way in the woods.  I stopped and set put my tripod and started shooting, when I saw the younger dow walk up and snuggle with its mother.  I kept shooting until they wandered out of sight in the brush, then walked around to where I expected them to come out into the open, arriving just as they did.  It wasn't the Owls, but it was a special experience of its own.
