Deer crossing

I took place in a photo shoot at Double Ditch a couple of days ago and saw something interesting as packed up and departed. Can you see it in this shot? Out on the ice? Of course not…I couldn’t, either – and I was there!

It wasn’t until we were almost back on the highway that we spotted these two deer bolting across the river on the ice. We stopped for a second so I could grab my biggest telephoto lens and snap a quick shot.

These two critters slowed down and walked very tentatively across the shore ice. I didn’t stay more than a few seconds so I don’t know if they made it without breaking through. I suspect they may have bolted across because of a pair of coyotes we saw out on the ice earlier. Neither are something you’d expect to see while out along the river on a nice, sunny afternoon!
