Here's Looking At You, Kid ...


“Here’s looking at you kid …”
       ~  Humphrey Bogart to Ingrid Bergman
 in the 1942 classic film “Casablanca”

A beautiful white-tailed deer button buck turns to glance across the Jordan Creek as if to say “Here’s looking at you, kid” before leaving to continue his trek through the Trexler Nature Preserve, Schnecksville, Pennsylvania on a late May evening.

Serenity In The Spring Snow ...


“Among the hills, when you sit in the cool shade of the white poplars, sharing the peace and serenity of distant fields and meadows – then let your heart say in silence, “God rests in reason.” And when the storm comes, and the mighty wind shakes the forest, and thunder and lightning proclaim the majesty of the sky, – then let your heart say in awe, “God moves in passion.”
              ~ Kahlil Gibran
               ~ 1883-1931
             ~ “The Prophet”
               ~ published 1923
A beautiful white-tailed deer doe grazes at sunset amidst the spring snow at Lehigh Parkway, Allentown, Pennsylvania a few days after a snowstorm on the first full day of spring March 21 brought more than a foot of snow to the region.

Summer Velvet ...



“The soul that sees beauty may sometimes walk alone.”
                 ~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
                                 ~ 1749-1842

The afternoon light dances on the velvet antlers of this majestic yearling on an August day at Lehigh Parkway, Allentown, Pennsylvania.

I was happily surprised to see this young white-tailed deer buck so early in the day, as he posed for a few photos before continuing to follow a beautiful doe down the summer path.
