Image of the week

The contenders are:

A Lesser Yellowlegs, taken from a fairly inconspicous position. I got off several shots without him or her noticing me. I am above the creek by about 8 feet and about 20 feet horizontally away. I am behind some trees "a sort of natural blind."

This deer is a considerble distance away, maybe 100 feet or so. I got lucky and saw her out in the clear. The creek is in a gully and she is down in it, probably getting some water.

And in my humble opinion the deer picture is much better. It gives a glimpse of the beauty of this park.
Now the bad news from this week. I saw a pair of Blue Herons this week, but the camera action was to slow to get them.
