As the title says I keep getting happy moments on the very few moments I get to disconnect from working in a nursing home is when I commute past fields at the edge of the town. It seems that with the human malware situation going on (as I had expected) the wildlife seems to be getting more comfortable and relaxed even close to towns ... which shouldn't be surprised when the traffic is a lot lower now:

I was as surprised as this 2 beautiful couple when we bumped into each other in the field on the opposite side of the road where my workplace is. It took all 3 of us a few seconds to realize: Ooooooh S^@%* !!! ... they took off and I was scrambling to frame them and 400mm (35mm Equiv) was just barely enough ... and oh man I am happy to have even those 4 extra Megapickles in the E-M1 Mark III (compare to its grandpa) for cropping. I was not expecting or could have hoped that I would find a male AND a female Roe Deer between the town and the main road (maybe between the main road and the highway). They didn't stay for a chat as they bounced off faster than an F1 race and more graceful than a Russian ballerina. I do have a whole sequence of 18 Fanatic-Picturing-Speed ( :p ) where they jump and float at the same time, I will post them here when I have more time to edit them.
.... and I was just looking for a Kestrel to test the AF-C for Birds-in-Flight this morning.

PS. My wildlife skills are so rusty after this winter of doing almost nothing that now when I try to sneak towards wildlife I feel like I have a police siren in my head ...I scare of everything now. I was almost a ninja by the end of last summer ... need to get back into the game and engage my invisibility cloak
