Default The Enemy

The dog barks, but we never see them. They are stealthy and destructive. We build fences they go over and into the garden. Finally got a shot of these two beauties in the front yard early in the morning. My, how they love the fruit trees and the clover. Kx, Tamron 18-250.

Yeah, they can be really destructive in the yard or garden but, they sure are beautiful!
Great shot!

Lovely indeed! a superb shot. I'm guessing that just moments after you snapped off this photo, they turned tail and ran, giving you no opportunity for a second chance!

They stood just long enough for me to run into the house and get my camera. For one burst, they just stared at me and then were gone. They disappeared without a sound and without a trace. We're going to be upgrading the deer fence around the garden this spring. It's amazing what they can get over.
