My photo
Having a large Scottish heritage that migrated from England into Canada to Maine and other states. I am from a family of 9. Six girls and 3 boys. My dad died young when I was about 8 years old. I have 4 children and 3 step children with the great joy of 20 grandchildren. I worked in financial institutions and accounting for many years. Now I sew and make lots of stuffed animals and many other things. I'm a grandmother that has years of sewing in a wide variety of catagories. Photography has become one of my passions over the years. Nature that God has presented us is one of the greatest to photograph. My family and pets hate to see me with a camera in my hands. The bug took hold at Christmas time taking photos of my children in front of the tree. That became a tradition. Then you have family gatherings, vacations, grandchildren and the list could go on.

Vacation with nature! Lots of Deer....

It has been awhile since I have written in my blogs. I wanted to have something a little different this time. We have a timeshare in Virginia we go to each year because we have to pay our fees, so I figure we will use it. It would cost us much more to go someplace else. This is in the mountains with a spactacular view. Wildlife everywhere. Deer in abundance, ground hogs, birds and flowers. There was a unit that the people saw the deer in our back common ground and started feeding them bread crumbs. The deer would come to within about 12 feet. If you tried to get closer they would gingerly back away. I noticed a couple of nights before we were to leave that the other folks already had gone. I told my husband that if I had another week to be there I could have them eating from my hand. So, I started giving the deer some bread that I had made but didn't turn out as well in the mountains as it did at home. I sat on a big rock and threw the crumbs out arms throw and began shortening the distance each time until low and behold one of the deer ate from my hand! My husband had been taking pictures, but the batteries died in my camera just when the deer actually ate from my hand. Here are a few photos we took. Enjoy!
