As we left home for Greenbrier Lake yesterday, a thunderstorm was starting to drop a little rain (scattered showers were predicted). We drove through the rain and found the sun again as we went over Catoctin Mountain. Arriving at the lake we discovered empty beaches, still water and reflections all around. One of the lifeguards said they had quite a storm and had closed the lake to swimming (it was opened shortly after I took these shots). The last shot taken in late afternoon shows the sun reflecting off the normally moving water.
Weekend Reflections is hosted by James of Newtown Area Photo.

My Friday reflections post was a Corvette engine (many horsepower). Here is a one-reindeer (?) cart outside an antique shop in Frederick. Marianne posted a picture of the cart back in 2007 and info (18-th century, Chinese) on the cart a few days later. The cart has weathered considerably since her photo and the deer is a recent addition. The shop owner uses it as a landmark for people to find his shop as the entrance is around the corner.

The Frederick County Corvette Club held a show at Everedy Square last Saturday. There were Corvettes from the 60's to present on display. The underside of the hood of this one had a highly polished finish, reflecting the engine compartment. And below is a shot of that engine with a reflection of another admirer of the car.

Ever now and then Marianne yells for me to come see something. For a while it was the hummingbirds, which sipped a couple of times and flew away by the time I arrived. Today she sounded more excited than usual and I arrived with camera to see this fawn at our patio door. After watching through the glass, I decided to go out and send him/her back to mommy deer. The fawn looked up as I approached and bolted at the shutter click. It stopped by the fence and then disappeared, only later to come back and lie down near our deck. I set a pan of water near his spot and he bolted again, returning later this shady (it's 102 again today!) resting spot. We worried that he would be in danger alone and called the county animal control office. They said it was normal for the fawns to wander during the day, but mommy deer was sure to be near and they would get back together at nightfall.
