A few of you might have noticed that I have been posting a number of Whitetail Deer images taken at the local Lloyd A. Stage nature center. I'm there every day that life and the weather allow. Walking the trails helps provide the exercise I need to continue my recovery from a heart attack back in 2015 in a beautiful and serene setting far more soul satisfying than time on a treadmill. Well I was walking again this morning and it appears that rutting season is upon us. Nothing serious yet, more like practice, or sparring. A couple clashes then switch to a different partner and repeat. What bothered me was the photographer in these photos. I have seen him in the park before and suspect he belongs to the Nature Center's Photography Club (I will be attending my first meeting this coming Thursday to check the club out). There are more than enough signs posted telling us to stay on the trails (where I took my photos from). I am conflicted. I know how much I wanted to move in closer for better images. I am also aware of how quickly the center would be destroyed if every visitor was allowed to wander all over the campus following their personal preferences.
