We've been without Internet service since Saturday and the technician was scheduled to come out this morning. I've been procrastinating about mowing and thought I'd tackle that as soon as the sun came up, while I waited for him.
When I walked out to let the chickens out and roll out the mower, I spotted these antelope grazing in the cool air and soaking up the early morning sun. So I naturally ran to the house for my camera:
The air was so sweet this morning. They paid little attention to me as I snapped a few frames:
This one looks like he's whispering, "What kind of critter do you reckon SHE is?"
I couldn't believe how docile they were as I slowly approached them. I was only about 20' from them:
They continued to graze and go about their business
As I kept walking towards them, they kept walking towards me and that really surprised me! I think I may have stopped breathing as they continued to walk closer.
Once we were about 10' apart, I stopped and just soaked them in, along with the glorious morning... my lawn mower forgotten.
I was out there for over an hour before a pair of rabbits hopped between us and they turned their fluffy white rumps to me and trotted off.
This morning was such a gift and what a spectacular start to the day!
