|Is anyone there?|
|There it is|
I was enjoying my last serene morning walk before the mosquitoes alter the experience - the first few were out. So I was walking slowly and quietly, certain to make it a long, peaceful walk. I'm sure the deer was watching me long before it revealed itself.
|Who's watching whom?|
Deer, although cautious and quick to flee, are also very curious animals. When they detect motion that is not clearly threatening, they will wait and observe for a long time to determine what the source is, friend or foe.
Eventually it decided I was not another deer, and it went on its way, gracefully, silently, simply disappearing into the forest.
More of our summer birds are returning to the lake now, including the Red-eyed Vireo, returning from the Amazon basin.

It is a beautiful time to be in New Hampshire (even with the mosquitoes).
