Deer Bed

I came across a May 13 entry in a nice blog called Year In Pictures ( about deer beds. Here's what it said about this particular photographer's work:

"Katherine Wolkoff’s latest series are photographs of deer beds, and they are both subtle and stunning. (Deer sleep in beds of deep vegetation they press down with their bodies in order to hide from predators. They never lay down in the same bed twice, but the imprints can remain for several days.) What we see in the photographs are swirls of trampled grass, wild flowers, and a shadow outlining the hidden impression of the deer’s body. What we feel is the animal’s spirit, if not something deeper."

Anyway, I read this and then went outside to take the dogs for a walk, and there was what looked like a deer bed in the deep grass by some brush (pictured) -- what do you think? Now I'll be looking for them whereever I go.
