Deer pictures taken at Fitzroy Park

Two weeks ago, Roger and I went to Fitzroy Park for the second time this fall. Fitzroy Park is near the village of Fitzroy Harbour, on the Ottawa River.

We were fortunate in coming upon six deer eating leaves about thirty feet away from us. Roger had the presence of mind to take pictures and these six are the best of the many he took. The deer were visible to us but the sunlight shining through the leaves is very effective in helping them conceal theselves.

They didn't approach us, but were not afraid of us.

Two of my recent book reviews

Recently I had book reviews published in the online magazine Compulsive Reader. The links are below. The first book was Vivien Shotwell's Vienna Nocturne. The second is Alex Marwood's The Killer Next Door.
