A Beautiful Site

Yesterday evening, we decided to take a little ride, just to get out of the house. Of course, I take my camera as usual. We turned on to Millers Mills Rd and just began coming to the top of an incline, when my husband spotted these to deer. We were very surprised that neither one ran away as we approached. Just after snapping this pic, the fawn took off running, and directly after, the mama did as well. The second pic isn't the best, but you can see the mama deer trying to blend in with the foilage. I'm a girl, that doesn't care to hunt...I would rather shoot with my camera, so I'm happy I actually was able to get this shot.
On the way home, going through the Ilion Gorge, we spotted a small bird on the side of the road. We were surprised he had'nt been hit by a car. So we turned around, drove up to him, and were going to take him home, fix him up and send him on his way. Walking up to him he looked like his wing was broken. When we bent down to pick him up, he took off flying into the woods. It was a baby Woodpecker, we figured he had fallen from the nest, and was stunned not realizing he could fly. Think we scared the bageebers out him enough to take off. Oh well, at least he more safe in the woods.
