Fandango’s Flash Fiction Challenge #79

The image below is from Ray Wischhover via Nextdoor.
For the visually challenged writer, the photo is of a male deer taking a drink of water from a backyard birdbath.

I’m thirsty and this is rather convenient. I’m sure the birds won’t mind. I don’t think they’ve done anything untoward in the water.
Ah, cool and refreshing. 
It’s quite a view isn’t it. Not that I’m into pretty scenery you understand.
It’s been a long climb. All I need now is something to nibble. 
Those shrubs over there look interesting, think I’ll just mosey on over and take a look.

It was a perfect shot, and won Paula first prize in her school’s photography competition. She’d called it “Wild life pays a visit”.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    At first I thought that “click” might have been a trigger. What a relief that it was just a camera’s shutter.

    Very apt, Di.
