I think this bull is starting to warm up the vocal cords for September!

FULL BUCK MOON | Tonight’s moon is named for the full grown antlers donning the heads of these gracious beasts this time of year. This full moon is sometimes referred to as the Full Thunder Moon due to the summertime storms that roll through. “A moon-flooded prairie; a straying
Of leal-hearted lovers; a baying
Of far away watching dogs; a dreaming
Of brown-fisted farmers; a gleaming
Of fireflies eddying nigh, —
And that is July!” ----James N. Matthews (1852–1910)
“These sacred #deer 🦌 of #Nara looooove rice crackers ❤️❤️❤️ The deer in this area are seen as messengers of the gods and killing one was punishable by death in Japan until the 1600s. Now they spend their days charming visitors and will bow their head eagerly for a treat 💕 @meyer_brad#ilovejapan@fundforteachers#fftfellow ” Elyse (Nacogdoches, TX) is researching ways communities in Japan maintained cultural traditions and also modernized with the 2015 UN Sustainable Development Goals to inspire students' engagement in their own sustainable development initiative for the school and community. #teachergrants#FFTFellow#teachersofinstagram#teachersummer#nodaysoff

These are black-tailed deer fawns I photographed on Vancouver Island in Canada. They presented the same challenge as the raccoons I posted yesterday -- depth of field. I took this image before I went digital, and my medium format film camera -- the Mamiya RZ 67 -- inherently had limited depth of field. Therefore, I didn't take a shot until both of the fawns stood equidistant to the camera. Wild animals often don't cooperate with what a photographer wants, but in this instance, they did -- for about one or two seconds. Because I took this shot in a Provincial park, the deer were protected and therefore they allowed a much closer approach. I used a 350mm lens (equivalent to a 180mm telephoto in the full-frame digital format), and my lens aperture was f/5.6 (which was wide open). I always photographed wildlife the largest aperture possible because that gave me the fastest shutter speed possible. In this case, that was 1/250 with Fujichrome Provia 100 transparency film. The image was scanned on an Imacon scanner to digitize it. With this camera, I always used a tripod.
This is my latest laid fibre piece. It is called Aspects of Flidais.
Flidais is a Celtic Goddess who represents both the domestic and wild nature of women. She appears in ancient myth as an Earth Mother. Modern Celtic Pagans consider her to be the Lady of the Forest and protector of trees and animals. Deer and cattle are her sacred animals and, as a shape-shifter, she was able to transform herself into a Deer. She represents the cycle of growth and rebirth and reminds us of the need to embrace all aspects of our roles as women. To embrace the domestic and nurturing sides of our feminine being and also to celebrate sensuality and achieve empowerment over our own sexuality. This allows us to find balance within our lives and leads us to delve deeper into our creativity.
I’ve got my nightly speed walk routine down pretty well now, and it’s interesting some of the things that fascinate me during these walks. Here is the deer that was walking with me, and two pictures from the creepy building I’ve become fascinated with. The same light is on every night but otherwise it appears abandoned. (Yes I’ve peeked in the window, and it’s just as creepy on the inside. I swear if that rocking chair ever starts to rock on its own, my walk is going to be a run). #nightwalks#deer#creepybuildings

My head trauma guy is doing well. It was a long night watching him. I try to stay with older fawns as much as possible so when they come to they know my scent. I knew he was thirsty but nervous so I always put water in front of them and splash it around, let it drip on their nose /mouth and eventually they start drinking. I mentioned he had a wound under his tail but I didn’t get into details because I had to see if I could get him through his head trauma. I took him to the @spcaec_wildlife and the wonderful @battyloon Karen stitched him up, Unfortunately it’s in a bad area for cleanliness and infection. Karen basically sewed him a new butt hole 😬😳🥴😱 Now I have to do my best keeping it clean, which obviously is going to be very hard 😞🙏 #reconstructivesurgery#bestnonpayingjobever#nevergiveup
