Young Fawn Hiding in the Woods. When I got home, I saw the rabbit in the same location as this morning. I then saw this fawn hiding in the woods. Its mother left it in the shade. It stayed perfectly still nearly camouflaged while I took some pictures. It was relatively dark in the shade, and I had to push the ISO to 1600. Even then, the exposure times were 1/25 and 1/40 sec. It is a good thing that the lens has VR such that I could get a relatively sharp image.
Rabbit with Bloodshot Eyes. As I was leaving for work I saw this rabbit next to the car. Since it was still relatively dark out, I used the pop-up flash on my D700 camera. Rabbit eyes are relatively big and reflect back bright red — making the rabbit look almost satanic, and related to the New Jersey devil.
Cicada Invasion. The last few weeks it has been very loud as the male cicadas sing their song. I can hear them, but have not climbed high enough in the trees to get some images. I did notice a large number of holes in the ground below one of my Maple trees. Following up the tree trunk, I did find a number of cicada exoskeletons from their final molt. Based on the dried mud on the exoskeleton, they must have climbed out of the ground just after the last rain storm.
