Four in the morning

Disc golf at E.T.Seton ... with a visitor

Added 2014-06-23

Got up at dawn, which, near the summer solstice, begins around 4:30 a.m., to play some frisbee golf at E.T.Seton.

Most of us have played late evening, sunset rounds. Playing at dawn reveals a completely different lighting scheme. Here's the 4th hole basket in the early morning —

Did I mention the course is completely deserted in the morning? I'm sitting at the picnic table and this sweet little deer walks right down the 4th fairway. By the time I got my camera out, she had sauntered into the bush between 4 and 5. I hustled along to see if I could get to 5 first, and spotted her through a clearing —

To be fair, I never got as close as suggested by the above picture, which has been zoomed and cropped.

Here's the entire picture, reduced in size, and yet she was looking right at me —

She never did come out at 5. Not wanting to lose a quarter litre of blood to the mosquitos, which are very active in the early morning, I wasn't going to go into the bush after her.
