The Deer and Her Shadow

This is a deer that frequents my backyard quite often. She has somehow been wounded near the bottom of her back left leg. For awhile she limped and could barely walk but over the past few weeks has healed pretty well and is walking much better and running a little. One day last week on a very sunny day she walked past my sunroom window and when I noticed the shadow I knew she was the subject for this week's Shadow Shot.

What a lucky shot...I don't know how they manage to make it through the thickets they run through without hurting themselves anyway, glad to see she's recovering.

Hey Harriet said...

Your deer friend looks so sweet. I'm so glad that she's recovering from her injury. You are very lucky to have her visit you! Fantastic shadow shot, and you must have been quick off the mark to capture it! Impressive!

I know deer can be terribly destructive, it's wonderful that you welcome her visits, and her shadow.

Poor thing looks haunted by that shadow (and everything else in the moving world).

Nice catch!

When I made the photo larger it looks like she has wounds on both legs..Maybe jumping something to get away..glad that she is healing..

I am glad she had the sanctuary of your neighborhood to heal in, otherwise nature might have taken a different course.
