I’ve had quite a lot of deer visiting the cottage lately. They come between 6 and 7 in the morning so I have to get up early to see them. I used to I grab my camera when I saw them. However it’s still too dark for photos when they visit so I started leaving my sketching kit by the window ready to go.
I have a deer block (food) that is a few feet from the walkout of my cottage. I have to be very still as sometimes they can see me through the window. When they are at the block they are relatively still for a few minutes.
My bedroom window is right above the walkout. I moved my sketching kit up there. There’s not much light in the room that early in the morning and I didn’t want to take the time to turn on the light so some of the colours got a bit mixed up.
