Deer are plentiful in the evening and fun to look at as they browse on the grasses. They also a desired by predators and they make an evening meal for numerous critters. They also become road kill when they get close to the highways and try to cross.
They are a curious animal, standing there staring at the two legged creature snapping pictures. They are also mesmerized by headlights at night and blinded. A combination that is very deadly. There is a stretch of highway west of here that I see a dead one along side the road almost weekly. The herd lives on though, it is but part of the process.
Quietly they munch away on their evening meal. glancing back at the stranger. Life and death wages on in the wild. Where it comes from, when will it happen….. is but s moment of fear that flies into adversity.
Being atop of the food chain it is a fear I know not. My cognitive reasoning carries me through dangerous moments. A separation that carries very little understanding.
May God be your companion this week.
