Other Nations

Taken in our backyard in the spring of 2005. These Axis Deer and Blackbuck Antelope still visit our yard regularly, but I like this image because of all the antlered Axis bucks in one place. Thanks to lenabem for her wonderful texture



"The animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older and more complete than ours, they moved finished and whole, gifted with extension of the senses that we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear. They are not brethren. They are not underlings. They are other nations, caught with us in the net of life and time, fellow participants in the splendor and travails of earth."

~Henry Beston, The Outermost House, 1928
