Hightailing it out of Here



If you never knew where the term “hightailing” came from,
well now you do

As my wife and I were riding my dad’s JD Gator along the hay field featured in my previous post with the dragon fly; a lone doe flushed from the high grass and made her escape across the field.
I’m sure she has a fawn or fawns stashed nearby but not wanting to disturb them we continued on our way with this image as a reminder of our close encounter

Seems like that's the deer feature I see most often. Nice work, Salty.

Its funny how we use saying in our everyday conversation without really knowing why we use them. Hightailing it makes perfect sense with this great shot. Thanks Salty.

Salty: wonderfully captured, the doe really gave you a wave as she left.
