You got it.

I know it wasn't too hard, but I enjoy this thread, so I thought I'd bump it up.

Thanks, NEWisc. You all can do it too. Anytime you get a photo of some critter, you can zoom out and try to hide it in the composition. Of course it works best with critters that are already blending in to some degree.

Really?!? I don't think it is that good. (...or were you talking to someone else? )

Unless it is a lawn ornament, I think I've got it! Cool looking shot.

I heard the dogs going bonkers.... normally there's a chipmunk or squirrel on the patio when that happens. I looked out the atrium doors and didn't see a chipmunk but saw that deer standing in the middle of that raised bed you can see in the foreground. I saw red and flew out the doors waving my arms. It gracefully leaped out of the veggie bed and over a limestone bench then casually walked off and stopped looking back at me. I went in and grabbed the camera and got 1 shot and that's what I got. The deer wasn't all that intimidated by me so I 'spose it'll be back for 2nd, 3rd, and 4th helpings!!!! Time to buy more chicken wire and fence off that bed too since I could see where she had a field day with my sweet potatoes.

That reminds me, I had a deer right up close to our house. She clipped all of the thick "ground cover" of violets (no biggie to me), but she also chomped on a few of my sunflowers--defoliating one completely and removing the flower bud on top. I went to the window with the camera to take a few shots, then outside for some better ones--that is when she noticed me and took off...that would've been my next step anyway...I want to protect the rest of the sunflowers and the corn I have in that section.

She did seem spooked, so maybe she won't be back, but I suspect after a week or so, she'll be right back at it.

By the way, we stopped at a farmer's market on our way back from one of Jeff's meetings (thanks, Kathie for suggesting we stop--assuming you see this)...and I picked up two potted sweet potatoes. Who knows if it is too late or not, but I never did get around to planting any, and this seemed easier than trying to get a store-bought one to sprout. ...although, I'm ashamed to say, they are still in the pots.
