Sheeped Out….

I have some more sheep pictures, but I’m about sheeped out for bit.  Sadly, I think that most of you are too, which really wasn’t my intention.  Either way, it has made me a bit apprehensive about posting more…at least any time soon.  I really have saved the best for last with that series and he is a beauty.  You will just have to wait for now.

I haven’t really decided how I’m going to proceed with the South Dakota series.  I was posting the way I was so that I didn’t get confused and shared what I wanted to out of that series.  It probably over kill and I do ever so apologize for that.  That is really all I have to say for now, so I bid adieu.

Have a beautiful day and tomorrow.

A Few More

Here are a few more from that set I spoke of yesterday.  I still couldn’t decide which ones to post, so…yes, they’re all posted.  I know. I know, but I couldn’t decided.  I hope that you like them just the same.

Have a beautiful day and tomorrow.

Just a few….

From this particular guy. I have a few more that I will be sharing, but one of these pictures describes exactly how I was feeling when I was trying to determine how many and which ones to post today.  Can you guess which one?  It also made me laugh.  I mean, let’s face it…it would not be me on a camping trip if there was not some animal sticking its tongue out at me.

There is something about an animal sticking it tongue out at me that just makes me laugh.  Hope these at least make you smile.

Have a beautiful day and tomorrow.

Step By Step

I couldn’t really decide which ones out of this set that I wanted to post, so I chose them all.  A step by step moment in the life of a grazing sheep.  This beauty.  Indeed.

Have a beautiful day and tomorrow.

The Baby…

One of many babies that I saw over my excursion.  This wasn’t the only sheep baby I saw, but by far one of the best sets.  Hope you think so too.

Have a beautiful day and tomorrow.

The Mule Deer

DSC_8370It was an early, early morning in South Dakota.  I was walking this hiking trail to Little Devil’s Tower.  It is not often that I get to hike as I often have my four legged companion in tow.  Many places like the one I was in, they do not allow pets on trails.  Anyway, I fully chose to take advantage of this traveling freedom.  It is no offense to the zone, but I do love my hikes.

As I was walking, the sun was beginning to shine in its brightest early morning glow.  I was the only hiker on the trail, so I had the sun and the nature to  myself.   I remember first seeing the sun just beaming through the trees and having this sense of peace. This sense of confidence. This is of something greater. I often get in touch with my inner self, but this was a deeper spiritual connection. I disregarded it as the man above and I are not always on the same page.

I worked my way up the trail.  Rocky hills, it becoming apparent how out of shape I had allowed myself to become.  Still, I trudged on.  Then I reached this grassy area where three mule deer stood in the dewy grass, grazing on the grass and leaves.  I had saw one further back, but these three were closer and in better light.

As I stopped,  I raised my camera and began to take some shots.  As I did, this beauty walked towards me with dowy eyes just staring me down.  My heart warmed, for whatever reason. Again, a feeling that I can honestly say I’ve never experienced.
DSC_8348He walked to only a few feet in front of me and we just stood there staring at each other for a moment.  The little guy then walked a little closer and began munching on a plant in front of me.  I continued to respect his space, but did shoot a couple of more pictures. That is a slight under estimate, as it was more than a couple…I was in awe and wanted to capture the moments so rare.

Sorry for the longer post.  Hope you didn’t mind.  Have a beautiful day and tomorrow.

All About the View….

Actually it is all about that head.  These beautiful things.  I’ve got so many more sheep pictures to share, but I might move on to another series for a bit. I am unsure. I just don’t want to sheep you out.  So, we shall see.

Until then I bid adieu.  Have a beautiful day and tomorrow.
