Wild life

Post by beachlion »

I was at my second habitat, the beach of Sandy Hook, NJ, today. After a sunny day, I went home by a very sandy trail. when I heard noises behind the bushes. Around this time the deer are getting active so I had my action cam at the ready. Result: a deer in full flight.

I saw a few other deer but they wizzed past before I even could point. If wish I was Dr Dolittle and could tell the animals not to be afraid of me.

Don Martin is my favorite cartoonist. I'm afraid that tells people about my sometimes bizarre sense of humor. And it also explains why I don't like sit-coms in general. ;)

That's why I don't especially object to the coyotes we now have roaming around.
