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.

Remember to double click on the first image, to view a larger slide show presentation after you have read the narratives~

I will be linking up with Judith for:

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~


  1. Wow, super photos and fences! Love them all.

  2. Great photos! I like the lighting in the first photo, and in the vulture's wings.

  3. Hi Mary, I hope your internet problems are fixed soon. I enjoyed seeing the deer in this post and also in your last one. The vultures sure are plentiful there! I haven't seen many here this year. I did see two young bucks enter the grain field up behind us yesterday though. The deer seem to be coming out of the woods more now, looking for food I guess. Blessings, Pam


  4. Hello.

    Great photographing. Design, composition and ideas. Very sweet atmosphere.

    Greetings and hugs.

    Have a good weekend. From Japan, ruma❃

  5. Again fab shots of the deer...and I don't think I have ever seen so many vultures sitting still

  6. I really like the misty looking shots. And the vultures are great.

    Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne

  7. It's nice to see the deer in their own element, and I've never so many vultures together at once!
    Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday Mary.

  8. Mary wow, awesome shots of the deer and the vultures.. Hope all is well, have a happy week!

  9. Beautiful photography - the fog gives everything a very special look. So many deer! and so many vultures!!

  10. Look at all those vultures!!!! They must be migrating! Or something is dead:) Your deer photos are like paintings. Enjoy the rest of your week!

  11. Great shots of the deer and vultures. I love the first photo of the fog and fence...beautiful!

  12. Hello!:) Your vulture shots are amazing, not a bird I really like, but I love deers, and your deers in the mist shots are beautiful.

  13. The Vultures are an awesome looking bird and quite a sight. Great pictures.

  14. I've never seen so many vultures in one sitting like this.

  15. Wonderful photos! The deer are beautiful animals. How cool to see so many vultures sitting on the fence.

  16. That first photo of the hilly countryside, fenced in foggy mystery and surrounded in intrigue, is the stage for the scene's protagonists, characterized by such the dramas of daily survival and unfortunate circumstance. Breathtaking photos, as always!!


  17. I love the deer / fog / misty shots. The vultures look quite large and threatening! :)

  18. As always your mosaics are beyond beautiful. I remain in awe. Beautiful fall colors and the misty fog just seems to enhance the photos. The deer are so sweet -- and so many of them. And I guess we should all be grateful that the vultures are there doing their job. Even if we'd rather not think about it.

    We will be here when you get your computer issues fixed. Don't worry, we won't forget you.

  19. Wow! Amazing photos of the vultures - love the deer and the fog too. I've been enjoying reading back through you posts. I love how you do your mosaics.
