Matter of opinion

To some they are the scourge of the world. I'm talking about the gardeners, the people who drive alot, etc.  To others, me included, they are a pretty cool animal.  Quite photogenic.  Which works out for me.  I've probably shot a couple hundred with my camera.  With my gun (yes, I have hunted them), not so many.  But, even though I see them alot, I still slam on the brakes to try and get a pic.  Not sure why.  It might be from when I was a kid living in Northern Wisconsin.  There wasn't nearly as many deer then as there are now.  Back then, if you saw one, you parked the car and stared at them as long as they would let you.  Nowadays, my kids see so many, they get a little peeved if I even point them out.  I'll still keep stopping.
