As you may have gathered by now, hubby and I spend a lot of time in the woods. Which means we’ve had our fair share of wildlife sightings, heck, we have deer visiting our yard every night at our current lakeside rental. The sight of a moose, elk or bear is thrilling in a yikes-if-he-wanted-to-he-could-take-me-down kind of way. But for me, it’s the lovely quiet and grace of smaller woodland creatures that captures my heart. These prints from photographer and artist Kari Herer really impart their impish qualities I love so much.
Even though deer sightings are pretty frequent for us, I still get a thrill when I look up and see them grazing in the woods around our yard. Their quiet, peaceful movements always entrance me. Rabbits and foxes are less frequent visitors, but we’ve had our glimpses..
Herer’s mix of whimsically sketchy drawings juxtaposed with elegantly styled florals truly speaks to the dignity of these creatures and how we delight in them.
