Deer-nanza!

1 Sep

Most mornings we are glad to see a single deer in the clearing, and delighted if there are two – usually a doe and her fawn. This morning, there were SIX deer out there!

There were two does and a fawn, but they were soon joined by three bucks, all chasing those poor ladies all over the place, including into the woods between our home and the house next door! This is a dreadful picture of one of the bucks, but it was still very early in the morning, he was in fairly deep shadow, and we couldn’t get too close for fear of scaring him away.

This is a much better shot, taken before the parade started, and they are standing in a sunny spot.  Both does are here, but one is standing behind the other; the only way you can tell is that there are too many legs!
