Early Morning Surprise

I was hoping to spot a variety of birds waking up and feeding at dawn today, but I came across a most unexpected creature — a deer. I would expect to see a deer near my Pennsylvania home, but not so much in Florida.

When I first spotted a tan mammal through the morning mist, I quickly set up my tripod and peered through my 600mm lens, expecting to find a rare Florida Panther. No such luck.  I did, however, find a number of interesting birds and enjoyed the quiet of the morning with a few naturalists — no crowds, no loud people. It was very peaceful. Like this image.
