.....continued from A Walk On The Wild Side!
There was a larger group of deer on the other side of the tree to the left.
These guys were quite shy too. (Sensing a theme yet?!) Enlarge the image to take a look at the horns on the fawn colored ram. Something else to note is how thin their legs are when you consider they LOVE to climb! It is not unusual to see the rams and goats up in trees or on top of anything they can climb up on!
I have so many shots that are just blurs or a peek of ears or the tip of tail as the animal disappeared from sight, but it was an incredible morning spent out in some of Florida's untamed wilderness. There were also two different areas with indian mounds from two different settlements of Seminole Indians as well as an old homestead and cemetery of six graves.
Something else we were able to see was an old dip bath (a long concrete pool about 6 feet deep and 20 feet long) built by the state back in the 30's to eradicate a tick disease that was killing the cattle. The cattle were driven up to one end and forced to jump in. They would swim through the pesticide to the other end where there were "stairs" so they could climb out.
An incredible visit with the past! I hope to return. If I do, you can be sure, I'll share the photos!
