My Moment with a Deer ......


So there I was, walking down a trail alone in Acadia National Park, at around 7am or so. All was quiet, and then I looked to my left- and there she was.

She saw me before I saw her. 

She froze, as did I. And after a moment, I slowly raised my phone and started shooting video - and she never flinched. She kept watching me like I was her - and it was like she knew I wasn't a threat. It was really very cool! The video is about a minute long - and just before I turned it off, and moved along, I did something I can't explain...

I waved goodbye to her. 

Haha - Is that weird?

I know it sounds ridiculous, but it felt like the thing to do,  like she understood it. She considered me still, as I walked away, leaving her to her feeding.

And 20 minutes later when I walked back, she did the same thing.

This time, I just nodded and kept walking as she watched me. 

I know it's a small thing, but to me - it's a special thing. A cool moment that I won't forget. 

But if I ever tell anyone else about this - I'll leave out the waving part. sounds weird...
