Early morning find

This is what can be found, maybe, if you get up and out early in the morning. I took the shot at about 7:30 a.m. That is early for me. Birding was OK, this was better. The doe is looking at me, about 50 yards distant, already one shot in the camera, the loud click of the SLR mirror making her alert. Love the camera, hate the noise. SLR -- single-lens reflex, 35mm format, the image transferred to my eye for framing and focus by a mirror in front of the shutter. Hit the button, the mirror flops up (or down), the shutter moves, the image is caught, the mirror immediately returning to be ready for the next shot. The flop is noisy.
