Sunday Morning Hot and Humid.

An early start at my favorite northeast gate was eventful. On the ride there this buck in velvet was walking the edge of a field. 

This is always a good start to the morning.  Deer flies were certainly plentiful as I started hiking.  It didn’t take too long when the hoot of a Great Horned Owl caught my attention as it glided out of a tree into deeper woods. A fresh scat pile left by a bobcat kept me alert.

 Not sure what kind of bird this was. I will check it out later in the week.
Walking a cart road I caught movement in the distance heading my way. 

I really thought this doe was going to literally brush my side.

 She was about five yards from me when she jumped and turned effortlessly before disappearing into the distant woods.
