Ocean Bay Park
Fire Island, New York

We often saw this beautiful young buck right out side the home we rented
on Fire Island. My son, Ryan, grabbed my camera before I could, and captured this great shot of him.
I cropped and edited it in PS 6 using textures by Shadowhouse Creations.

White-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) are the most widely-distributed large mammal in North America. While native to Atlantic barrier islands, deer were rarely spotted on Fire Island when it was first designated as a National Seashore in 1964. Today, however, deer are commonly seen across FIre Island.

In 1974 Fire Island’s deer herd was estimated at 50 individuals and by 1989 it was close to 500. In 2003 the deer population on Fire Island was estimated to be between 500 and 700, and today the population is between 300 and 500. ~ National Park Service

Words are not just words
they are kisses
on the lips of silence
that speak of your essence

and your words
are the most lovely kisses
