He Hides in Flowers – Watercolor

deer hides in summer flowers

Don’t you wish you could too?

Last week I ran a nature summer camp for children that focused on wetlands and the animals that live in and around them. As we hiked to the river, one young camper spotted this gorgeous male, white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus), hiding amongst the summer flowers. I had walked right passed him, less than a few feet away. Oblivious… So focused on presenting material…missing life right in front of me.

Thank you to the student observant enough and in the moment.

Thank you Mr. Deer…your secret place is safe with us. We wish you well.
