On Thursday evening I had an opportunity to get a good look at the deer that has been around our house lately. We had a good staring match for quite some time. It was completely locked onto me, but content to remain frozen while I raised my camera for a few pictures.
It was so still it didn't even chew the foliage it had in its teeth. Only after I continued walking did it bound off into the woods, snorting its annoyance with me.
There are many water flowers blooming around the lake edges now, all visible from a kayak paddling along the shores. The water lilies are particularly pretty early in the season when they are fresh, and before the bugs get to them. There were quite a few honey bees out over the water collecting nectar from them.

We were also treated to a beautiful summer sunset to end a perfect day.
