I nearly didn't find what I was looking for

There is a large herd of deer who roam freely in my neck of the woods. They can usually be seen grazing in the fields at sunrise and sunset. I have been trying to capture that elusive, bucolic image of the graceful animals for a long, long time.
This evening, as I set out to prepare my beloved Wundermutt's dinner, the setting sun filled my kitchen with a beautiful warm glow. I quickly grabbed my camera and stepped outside to snap a picture or two:

It was only when I drew my focus out, that I spotted these beauties:

Maybe we need to stop looking for that perfect ~~ whatever ~~ and simply let it come to us.

A quiet winter morning
