FOLLOW THE LEADER

I noticed some deer in a thicket below a populated area just outside of town.  These animals were trying to work their way up a hill where they wanted to gain access to a field and a large stand of trees on some acreage on the other side of a road.  They made their way up the hill silently and slowly.              

 The journey started with one lone animal who forged the way.
 He stops and demonstrates extreme caution.
A friend steps out of the thick foliage and follows along behind her.


 And a third animal follows behind.
 Soon a trail of deer threads its way up the hill.

 Once at the top of the trail a burst of speed carries the lead deer across the road to safety in the big trees beyond.



 They continue on until they all cross the road to safety on the other side.
