My World #26 - Half a Year Old.

This is my posting for the My World Meme . It is hosted by Klaus, Ivar, Sandy, Wren, Louise and myself. Last week there were over 120 people showing their worlds to us. Won't you join in, I want to see where you live and thrive. We have reached the 6 month anniversary this week, thanks Klaus for all you do for this Meme. Here is part of 'My World'.

I made a post earlier on the Great Blue Heron rookery in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park but left out one part. As I was taking photos two deer broke cover and ran below the rookery. This is a beautiful park even with the lack of greenery at this time of year.
I would say it was a mother and a first year youngster.
The heron had little choice as they broke through the area. I had not even seen these heron because they were on the opposite side of where I was shooting. Check out the heron right in their path.
He did get out of the way as they got closer and in a minute everything was calmed down.
There are a lot of great world post to visit, join in to have some fun.

Hello Tom. I wonder who got the biggest fright the heron or the deer? :) A lovely post. You get to see such amazing things there where you live.

Lew said...

Sometimes nature surprises you. And you get a wonderful post! Good work to keep shooting and catch the encounter.

Great picture. I love the little moments in nature when something sudden happens and then all is quiet.

TSannie said...

Wow! What great photos! That heron really is lucky he didn't get "deered" over!

Luke Wiley said...

Speedy wildlife!

Tarolino said...

What wonderful wildlife scenes. I agree that it seems like a charming place to visit. One can only imagine the great beauty of it when things turn green. The deer are such dears.

Amy Wagner said...

real beautiful photos! nice week!

Arija said...

Lucky, lucky, lucky! Isn't it great when they pop up like that?

Carolyn said...

What great photos and to be able to get the deer and the herons at one sitting is great. The herons in our neighbourhood are always so indignant when they are disturbed and sound like some ancient dinosaur when they depart. Thank you for sharing and have a great week.

Brit' Gal Sarah said...

Wonderful Tom, we were lucky enough to come across a herd of deer whilst doing some geopcaching at the weekend. If you get time to pop in to my blog, roll down below MW to our Lost in Texas post to see.

Louise said...

THese are fantastic photos! I especially love the first one. And this is 6 months old? Wow! (And I'm impressed you keep track so well. Or is it in the title and I just haven't noticed, in which case I'm still impressed.)

Glennis said...

Good captures, you must of been very quick with your camera. Deer look so neat as they bound away with tails flashing.

Rose said...

Don't you wonder what that heron thought?
