The photo above was at 3:30 in the morning when I had to get up and help hubby with a few things.
I went out just before dawn to check on my mules and see if there was a fog moving in. There usually is after a hot humid day and a cool but damp night.
But the valleys provide for mists and fog which make it interesting.
This Buck showed up as the fog began to move across the pasture. Another young buck wandered into the area too, but I couldn't get a clear photo of him. They look like the ones I've been catching on the trail cam.
A doe jumped the line fence and stopped. She obviously saw me but it must not have bothered her much as she went on to graze and wander off into the woods.
I glanced towards the woods and...
there was a hawk watching over the meadow.
I had promised to let my neighbors' dogs out into their fenced yard for a potty break. I walked up there and took another walk out the ridge.
I guess it was my morning for wildlife.
I watched the moon fade away to the western sky and headed back home to start my day.
The Buck Moon.
