Before this bedded buck sprang to his feet and raced off in the woods, he laid low, concealed and out-of-sight, waiting for me to pass him by. When I stopped he actually lowered his head, as if to screen himself from view. Only 15 yards separated us, but he didn't budge for ten minutes (yes, I actually timed him). I took this picture just before he leapt up and bound away.
I wonder how many deer I've walked right past, failing to notice them because they didn't panic and run when hiding was their best strategy for survival.
I wonder what else I've missed because I didn't have the eyes to see.
Mark 8:18 - Do you have eyes but fail to see, and ears but fail to hear?
