Doe, Bear, and Bird–Wild in My World
When the wild comes close, our family calls it a Three Bobcat day after a wonderful afternoon when we chanced upon three different bobcats in a few short hours. Today, the Untamed skittered through the edge of my morning. First, a beautiful woodpecker scampering over the tree outside my window at sunrise hinted at the conjunction of Wild and Tame. Then came the doe who stared back at me long enough that I captured some of the best deer photos I’ve ever gotten (only this and this come close) and finally, like the furry earth itself moving, a black bear loped across the road in front of me. Leaping out of the car, I missed taking its photograph by only a second.
But, it was a Three Bobcat day. A lucky day. The kind of day that can never be duplicated only remembered and savored.
