After a day of rain a few weekends ago, I drove the short route to Long Hunter State Park located on the southeast side of Priest Lake. I had only visited this park one other time back in February in the dead of Winter. On that visit I captured a few images of a Yellow Bellied Sapsucker which was a Life List bird for me.
On this visit new green grasses blanketed the large fields along the drive into the park with woods on either side. I slowed down half way back into the park as I approached several White Tailed Deer munching on the new grasses of Spring.
Sitting in my car, I watched them as they quietly grazed on the grasses. Occasionally, one of them would wander back toward the edge of the woods and reach up and grab a leaf off of a low hanging branch. All the while they seem to keep an eye on me.
