I'm still remembering our trip through the Great Smoky Natl. Park, in particular Cades Cove in Tennessee. Below the sun is trying to break through the clouds and mist in one of the meadows along the Cades Cove trail. This area was once full of early settlers in the 1800's.
Just around the bend as the sun was finally up, we began to see many deer .In this pic we came upon what looked like a 'good 'ole boy's club'--a meadow filled with young bucks with full racks, still covered with velvet.

Such a gorgeous color on these Cockscomb in Thomas Jefferson's garden. More beauty can be found @ Skywatch Friday.

Wonderful deer picture and absolutely terrific Milton Berle quote. I'm guessing that few "young" people today would know who he was. Such a great comedian and wise man too.

Wonderful photos! I love the gentleness of the misty sky and handsome deer, and then the way the series ends with the dramatic colors of the cockscomb flowers!

My former neighbor on the mountainside used to lovingly call our whitetail buck friends, "the bad boys of summer" ~ she'd come outside most summer mornings to find a gang of them dozing by her front porch. :-)
