Spot the deer?

in #exhaust4 years ago (edited)

I just finished a 3.8km run that lasted about 0hh:26mm:53ss !


Today I nearly sprinted into 2 deer, got scared by a squirrel, saw a little mouse poke it's head from out underneath our house, saw an eagle and just generally had an amazing day.

Both these photos have a deer in them watching me... can you spot them?


My run today wasn't great.... which is disappointing but not unexpected. You can't have two weeks off and not lose the conditioning. I got to the point where I ran faster up my last crazy hill because the soles of my feet were so uncomfortable. I usually walk when they're that sore... but I just figured the faster I get home the faster it's done.

In hindsight, maybe I should have only run on Monday and Friday... but I wanted to speed up the conditioning for next week, so I'm happy to take the pain today. I also did 3 hill sprints this afternoon. I had intended to do 5, but figured I should probably ease into being hardcore.

Anyway, if you couldn't find the sneaky deer, here are some close ups:

Love these guys!

The deer in the second pic is easy to spot but I'm not too sure about the first. Is it just below the center of the pic?

It's just a smidge to the right of the center:

Such a cute little doe.

You have to wonder what deer think when they see humans running. What would be so big that it would scare a human?!

Sounds like a lovely but painful day.

I spend so much time thinking about what deer and squirrels must think of us. The deer aren't terrified of me... they never seem to be panicking, it's almost like I've got a restraining order of them and they must keep at least 50 feet at all times.... but yes, surely they only think I'd be running away from danger... which is true if you count heart disease.

Ha, that restraining order explanation is a good one. The deer are a little more lax here. The restraining order must only be specifying 20 feet in my case :)

This reminds me of one of those "spot the difference" pictures. I can't see any deer, all I can see is a alien shadow of you in the top one. Cool story though. I'd love to see forest animals on my run. Instead I'm usually just happy that no cars ran into me.

Haha, if I set up a spot the difference game, I would 100% put two identical pics up.

The sun is in front of me, so no alien shadows of this ninja. I think that's a tree stump, and the deer just to the right of it.

I mean, I still do get cars trying to run me over... they're big farm obnoxious 4X4s with gun racks... yay.

Your wish is my command... there is one deer in this photo..


Nice one. They're right at the base of the tree in the middle. Thanks for the challenge.
