Nature on Your Doorstep
The latest PinawaLife Newsletter reminded me of why I love my neighbourhood in North Eastern Manitoba and why there are so many people eager to enjoy the natural environment of this area. http://www.pinawa.com/news_arc.htm
We share our yards with the wildlife and there is something very calming and humbling that comes with this lifestyle. The birds and animals become familiar to us and we come to know their habits. Some of their habits (like eating everything we plant) we don't like but that is the compromise we make for the pleasure of living in this natural setting.
Over time, if you closely observe a deer herd, each individual is easily identified and recognizable. There is a perception that they all look alike but each individual is unique unless, of course, you are looking at identical twins. This brings a question to mind. Are deer twins identical? Makes one wonder. You can judge for yourself after looking at some of the close-up pictures Nancy Bremner was able to take this past week. Notice too that some of them have permanent scars that will set them apart. I hope you enjoy some of the faces that appear in Nancy's "rogues" gallery.
