Doe, Fawn, and “K” stories voting reminder and stuff

The “K” stories voting window will close sometime Tuesday (14 days window). You can wait until then, but to be safe and ensure your vote is counted, you should probably vote for your favorite “Alphabet Challenge K-Stories” HERE<<<This Is A Link by the end of tomorrow (Monday).

Clicking on the above link will take you to the post with the poll where you can cast your vote. The post also contains links to the individual stories. After voting, readers can — if so moved — spread the news about the story to friends and family. Or, not. But, we hope for yes.

So . . . Doe and Fawn . . . we’ve had a doe and fan hanging around the yard last week. We saw them a number of times and I was lucky to see them out my office window.

Unfortunately, I’m shooting with them in the shade and through a window and screen. Still, with a little manipulation, the photos are passable.

The photos can be seen full-size in the SmugMug Gallery HERE.<<<This is a link You can also click on the individual photos for a larger version in a new tab or window. Again, the originals are very noisy and so are the processed photos.

The doe noticed me opening the blinds, so she kept an eye on the window.

. . . the fawn was oblivious . . .

He’s a cutie, he is . . .

This next shot is right before they headed across the road (I was too late going out, and missed a photo without the screen) . . .

But, the reason I waited to head outside was because I shot this video . . .

I’ll pull a few stills from it and see if they are any good.

That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.
