Cherish is my favorite word, and I cherish the ability of turning the routine into a beautiful moment.
Nature creates in me, a spiritual and meditative time to bring peace, harmony and balance, into an otherwise ordinary day~

White Tailed Deer, Fog and Vultures~


It has taken me a couple of hours to just get this post to save what I am sharing.  
The Internet kept failing as I would try to fill in my summary.
I will keep it brief.
A foggy morning, White-tailed Deer and what my images would have looked like, had I not hit the contrast button. 
I apologize for having to publish 2 posts back to back once again, but we have been away, and we are having challenges with Internet service and I want to post while I am able.  I cannot promise that I will get to make as many visits as I usually do to other blogs, or leave comments, but I will do my best, as I can.

Sadly many a time the White Tailed Deer are stuck down by vehicles.  
When this happens, it does not take long before the Vultures arrive.  
Usually the Turkey Vultures arrive first, and then the American Black Vultures, who will then take charge of the spoils~













Wildlife Seen in and Around My Neighborhood~


Well, what a mess, what a mess!
We have been traveling and everything that could possibly go wrong, has.
Hoping for better days.
Last year we had the government SHUTDOWN.
This year it is car problems and computer hook up failures, among other things...
deep sigh~

That being said, I have had the most difficult time trying to stay on and leave at least a few comments for the two memes that I am part of the community of.
Last week, I said that I would not publish 2 posts back to back, but due to not being able to get on line as I would hope, I must do it one more time, before returning to my desk top at home and having familiar Internet connections that are at least somewhat trustworthy.
I will try and get online and post comments, but it all depends on what kind of service we will have these coming days.

All of these images were taken in and around my neighborhood in Oldham County, Kentucky.  
The Wild Turkeys roam down the lane and sometimes have even made their way to Tingsgrove.  
We have a lot of White tailed Deer that graze and sleep on our 2 and 1/2 acres.
My friend had shared with me last year that they have a very large tree in their front yard, and for the past 9 years it has been used by the Turkey Vultures to rear their young.  
Ranae called me up as well as alerted me by e-mail to the fact that the young ones had finally come up and shown themselves.  
They are really very attractive at this stage.
I drove to their home on 3 occasions and each time was just stunned by how close they are to Ranae's front door, they even have a dog, as well as the chickens that you will see in this post.  
The wild and the domestic, all living in sweet harmony...most of the time.  
Some neighbors do not follow the rules and their dogs run and take down wildlife.
We also have Red Foxes and Raccoon's that create kind of a battle against the wild and domesticated animals, but for the most part, we all have learned to live in peace~

Morning dew upon the Queen Anne's Lace and spider webs to make a morning statement~



These were taken right across the lane from our home.  
One of the twins that you will see, was taken out either by a dog running lose, or a car~


Mike and Ranae's chickens, aren't they neat ;)







Guess I better leave now, one of the parents flew above me, circling as it looked down...


Doe with twins, One would go missing after this~








Quite possibly cousins~




Fawn and doe giving a mutual face washing~



These 2 fawns are the product of 2 different does, but are related, in thinking that one doe is mother of the other adult.
My next door neighbor knows them very well by personality and temperaments.
 Sue has fed them out beyond her home for several years~
