Oh, deer me!


Finally! After going to Chesnut Park in north Pinellas county so many times in the last 2 years, I get some pictures of the deer. It was 8:30 in the morning and I was pulling into a parking spot when they came running by. They stopped at the edge of the woods right in front of me. At first I thought they would run into the swampy woods before I could even get my camera out. Four of the six did but two hung around along the edge for a while. I opened my car door and stood next to it and took the above quickly. Eventually, they all headed into the woods. I looked for them on the boardwalk but never did see them again. Last week, one of my coworkers said she saw 17 deer on the baseball field while biking one afternoon. One of these days I'm going to head up there later in the day to see what else I can find that I don't see in the mornings.
