Looks like I managed to photograph myself into yet another large photo post, leaving me sitting here after 11 p.m. struggling to pull enough brain cells together to come up with complete sentences to accompany said pictures. Go me.
To start things off, a couple of spider webs I noticed as I drove to work this morning:
Same web as above from a different angle:
The two webs together—essentially, this is the visual that caught my eye in the first place:
Hard as it may be to believe, I had dinner with Mom and Dad after work and yet am only posting two bird photos from that visit. Yes, really—try to contain your shock...
A Goldfinch on the water fountain at Mom and Dad's:
And a lucky catch of two Chickadees not only sharing the fountain but looking the same way at the same time.
Shortly after we finished dinner, a doe and her two fawns showed up in the yard to enjoy their own meal under one of the apple trees:
This fawn is still working out how to keep hold of the apple long enough to bite into it:
"I think I got it this time..."
However, the undisputed highlight of the evening was what happened shortly after the deer left. Kaylee hopped up on the hot tub lid, while Dad was sitting just in front of it. What happened next was adorable, funny, sweet... basically it was one of those times I was extremely grateful for this project, as if it had happened a year ago I'd have been sitting there saying "Dammit, I wish I'd had my camera with me." And because the pictures tell the story so perfectly, I honestly don't think I need to add a single caption to any of them. Which works out well, as I'm not sure I can stay awake long enough to write some anyway:
