Weekly Photo Challenge: Free Spirit

Sorry for the lateness of this entry but I’ve been on the road again (New Mexico).  I took this photo at about 6:30 in the evening near Cimmaron, New Mexico.  There was a group of 7 or 8 dear crossing the road as I came by.  I stopped at got out of the car in time to catch them, one by one, jump over the barb wire fence.  They did is so effortlessly that they epitomize the thought of free spirit to me.

    • TRS – All 8 cleared it with no problem – even the little guys. Most didn’t even get a moving start. Thanks
