Sanctuary

I look upon my home as my sanctuary (at times). Living on a farm/ranch can be really peaceful (at times)…..particularly when the cows are out to pasture as they are now and hopefully remaining there for another month or so.

But it would appear that even the wildlife are seeing my home as a sanctuary. Two mornings ago, as I was just getting to my first coffee of the day, what should be walking through my garden spot and up to my kitchen window but this beautiful buck deer!!

My faithful companions…camera and lens, jumped into my hands almost immediately and I banged off as many shots as I could as he walked around our yard and I aimed from every window.

Always a treat when these beautiful animals come to me and I don’ t have to be pursuing or searching for them on my evening tours.

Experiment

I decided to experiment with my blog. I wanted to test if the sky would fall if I failed to blog one Thursday, last Thursday to be exact. My conclusion? The sky does not fall  if I fail to blog on any particular Thursday. In fact, life continues to carry on and at a very full and rapid pace, as usual.
But I digress.
It is Thursday again and to celebrate my return to regular blogging, thought I’d share some highlights from our little tour around our “neighbourhood” tonight. Also, speaking of celebration, during these past two very busy weeks we got all our animals out to pasture including the bulls. This achievement means more camera time for Flicka Rancher

Hubby and I needed to check on our cows in our closest pasture (45 minutes away) as we hadn’t been up there since taking them a little over a week ago. On each of these pasture checking trips, no – make that most every time I head out in my truck, I pack my camera in case the local wildlife is out and about.

They did not disappoint tonight.
