“... I wanna go and bounce the moon
Just like a toy balloon…
You make me feel so young
You make me feel there are songs to be sung
And bells to be rung
And a wonderful fling to be flung …”
~ “You Make Me Feel So Young”
~ 1946 popular song composed by
Josef Myrow, lyrics by Mack Gordon
~ recorded by the wonderful Frank Sinatra
The rising moon of a beautiful mid-November evening indeed looks the size of a toy balloon you could bounce over the Central Range of Trexler Nature Preserve, Schnecksville, Pennsylvania.
Background texture by Jai Johnson added for artistic effect.

My favorite white-tailed deer doe and her fawn pose for a sweet September portrait at home in the park as sunset knocks on the door of a beautiful, waning summer evening.
I’ve been blessed to photograph this doe and her fawns since 2012, and it’s a true joy to me personally and as a photographer.
