Summer deer

Of the thousands of photos I took throughout my college career, a small handful stand out in my memory more prominently than the rest. Among these cherished few are ones I shot on a fateful, frigid February day while meandering through a local metropark. A pair of trusting deer let me step within ten feet of them, and I snapped away as they stood before a snowy wooded background.

As summer begins its departure, memories like these are pleasant reminders that the colder seasons aren’t all that bad.

Of course, you’ve noticed the lead image of this post shows no signs of snow or cold. These photos were taken a few weeks ago in the peak August heat at Sidecut Metropark. Perhaps they can complement those chilled, snowflake covered deer. And maybe I should return for more once the leaves start to fall.
