Views of a Strange Planet

Went for a Sunday drive.  Saw this:

White Sands National Monument

Drove a little farther, saw this:

Odocoileus hemionus

You might have guessed, I did not take the first picture.  It is a
view
from Earth orbit
.  The second picture, I did take; it is a
view through my windshiled.  The two locations are about thirty
miles apart.

    Our ecosystem here in urban Bloomington IN also sports lots of wildlife. Deer, bunnies, coyotes, raccoons, chipmunks, squirrels, hawks, caw-caw-caw-crows, ravens, bats, cardinals, piliated and other woodpeckers. But mostly deer. Cows of the woods. It’s seriously unbalanced. Some people want to sanction bowhunting, to cull the population. Others, armed w/ shotguns by the sound of it, take matters into their own hands — usually late at night. A little scary, but this is Indiana.
