Link with 916: Stepping out.

[One day at the farm we took a hike through a wooded area. When we emerged on the other side we saw several deer in the clearing. They were momentarily motionless. Eventually they darted off silently in different directions.

At night, under moonlight, when no one is around it must be quite a sight to observe their movements. And with so many predators like bears and wolves, I wonder how they get any sleep.]

Sublime deadening passion - great economy and even greater thought. Loved.

Aurora: I'm pleased you like it!

Amalendu: Thanks. Yes, I sometimes wonder about the anxiety they must suffer at times (unless you're at the top of the food chain).

Andrew: I'm glad I'm in this part of the country. :-) (Not that I'm a deer).

Pamela: :-)

Borut: Thanks. There is a beast there alright, sometimes you come across that first.

John: Thanks.

Pat: *Know what ya mean, nudge nudge, wink, wink...*

Bill: Thank you.

Floots: Thanks.

Polona: Thanks.

Nick: Thank you.
