Words and Images from Ed Felker


babyPbabyD 3This young deer has been hanging around for a few weeks, often very close to the house. This morning he was bedded down in the pine needles between our two fences here, a place protected from falling snow because of the evergreens above. When he saw the dogs run into the yard, he stood up and ran toward the fence! Petey and the deer seemed to share some sort of connection as they played, sniffed and postured through the fence wire.

  1. I guess the deer felt safe knowing they were separated by the fence. I also think that animals can sense kindred spirits even in other species.
