July 2014 summer heat
I was looking out my back window, when I saw this deer. First it smelled one of our plants, then it walked up to the hummingbird feeder and smelled the flowers on it.
I took this photo from the Dee Wright Observatory at the summit of the old McKenzie Hwy. A nice day trip up from Springfield.
